As is often the case, this week’s Word of the Week was something I came across in the newspaper. Those up on pop culture will probably know why I saw the word in the paper this week. Those not up on pop culture might think I was reading about some new high-end restaurant or store. (After all, Merriam-Webster.com defines posh as “elegant, fashionable”.)
Well, in truth, it wasn’t really the word that was in the news — it was the person who goes by the name “Posh” (or Posh Spice, to be more accurate).
Actually, as I write this, I realize maybe Word of the Week should have been “news” — as clearly the definition of what constitutes news is changing from when I was in journalism school. Who would have guessed that someone getting a new hairstyle would be news!
