Silkwood Shower

So, I got an email from Kristen today that asked me to make — oh, let's call them "changes" — to a little something I did. Then a follow-up email that she forwarded me that bore the subject line "Dictionary.com Word of the Day":
wow, how appropriate!

Word of the Day for Thursday, January 11, 2007

bowdlerize \BODE-luh-rise; BOWD-\, transitive verb:
  1. To remove or modify the parts (of a book, for example) considered offensive.
  2. To modify, as by shortening, simplifying, or distorting in style or content.
The girl has a sense of humor, I'll give her that much. In all honesty, however, the changes were made without prejudice.
