I don’t care what Dr. Phil says.
The past tense for drag is dragged, as in “Look what the cat dragged in.” Dragged is a verb. Drug is a noun. Well, now I take that back. Drug can be a verb, but only when referring to the administering of drugs as in, “Did you drug your date?” But mostly it’s a noun. Which brings us back to the proverbial cat, and while we often attribute to cats strange and wondrous powers, in truth they are incapable of drugging anything.
I know we have real problems in the world, and believe me, I’m riled about all of them, but nothing – nothing can drive me crazy like hearing someone use “drug” as the past tense for drag. And yes, I know I’m shallow. Deal with it.
