Day’?s Verse:
You who are servants, be good servants to your masters—not just to good masters, but also to bad ones. What counts is that you put up with it for God’s sake when you’re treated badly for no good reason. There’s no particular virtue in accepting punishment that you well deserve. But if you’re treated badly for good behavior and continue in spite of it to be a good servant, that is what counts with God.
1 Peter 2:18-20

Is Kleenex singular or plural? Do you have a pile of Kleenex, or Kleenexes, or perhaps Kleenices? In any case, I anticipate using quite a number of them over the next few days. I have succumbed to one of the many colds floating around.

  1. From the Urban Dictionary (seems like a tongue-in-cheek publication):
    The “scientific” plural of Kleenex. Modeled after index-indices, matrix-matrices, etc. Pronounced KLEEN-ih-seez.
    From a comment on Wired’s website following an article on how to make Prius plural: Trademark lawyers will always advise companies to use their trademarks as adjectives only, never as nouns. For example “Kleenex facial tissue” and “Xerox copier”. The nouns are tissue and copier. Kleenex and Xerox are adjectives. In common informal usage, this convention is often not followed, but if you are wanting to have a pedantic answer, then the singular is “Prius auomobile” or “Prius car” and the plural is “Prius automobiles” or “Prius cars”. Problem solved.
