injaynesworld "Drug Is Not The Past Tense For Drag"

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.

You're not shallow, you're right. And don't tell anyone, but Dr. Phil makes my skin crawl.

In Texas, we not only use drug as a verb but we further mutilate the English language by expressing your aforementioned cat phrase like this: "Looky he-ah what the cat done drugged in." Yep, seriously - I couldn't make that up if I tried.

Dr. P has his own language! You have to be a redneck, live in a trailer, and beat your wife for it to make any sense:) You are funny!

Love Tawnia
