Linguistic Exception

...man, you should have seen them kicking Edgar Allan Poe/ I am the eggman, they are the eggmen/ I am the walrus/ goo goo g'joob g'goo goo g'joob.....

Being that I am an unabashed Grammar Geek, I use the word 'prepare' when I am cooking meals. It grates harsh fingernails across the nape of my chalkboard neck to hear someone offer to 'fix something to eat.'

This applies to lunch, dinner, snacks... even breakfast.

Unless it's eggs.

Because you had to break them, yeah?

(I Am The Walrus; The Beatles)
