This could only happen in Australia:
Apparently, Australian government experts are calling on Aussies to stop using the word “drought” and replace it with “living with dryness” instead. Supposedly, the latter is far less depressing… They also call it “the big dry,” which to me sounds far creepier.
Hmm… Can you think of any other good euphemisms we should suggest?
Instead of “single” or “unmarried,” let’s call it “living with personal time.”
Poverty? No need for it. Now we can call it, “living without obligations.”
Recently lost a loved one? They’re not deceased, that’s too depressing. Call it, “living in another dimension.”
Terminal illness? No need to be sad. Now you’re just “living for today.”
Any other ideas? Oh, and if you can’t think of any, don’t worry, you’re not having writer’s block. You’re just “living with decreased creativity.”
