Savage Me

“I want you to savage me,” she said, glancing at him with a wicked smile on her face.

“You mean you want me to ravage you, don’t you?” he responded.

“What?”

“Savage is usually used as an adjective or a noun,” he said proudly. “It’s rarely used as a verb. One doesn’t savage something…or someone.”

“What?” she repeated, now with a quizzical look on her face.

“Yes,” he continued. “Savage means undomesticated or lacking normal human constraints. But ravage means to wreak havoc upon. So what you really want me to do,” he said as he winked at her and flashed what he hoped was a sexy look, “is to wreak havoc upon you, not to act undomesticated or to lack normal human constraints. Hence, you want me to ravage you, not savage you.”

“No,” she said emphatically as she jumped up out of the bed and put on her robe. She turned around and glared at him. “You want to know what I really want? I really want you to get up, get dressed, and get out of here. You are an asshole. A pedantic asshole.”

“Wow,” he said. “You really know how to savage a guy.”


This is my post for today’s one-word prompt: “savage.”

            Someone savaged his blog. Or maybe sabotaged it is the correct verb. Check your spam folder, Sandi. That seems to be where his comments are ending up.

            I just realized, this is on Fandango’s board, and I don’t want to take over his comment section. 🙂

    Correcting someone’s grammar or vocabulary could be embarrassing to them, and they will most likely consider you as being rude. Most people don’t enjoy being corrected, and this is definitely a romance killer, but I think it is necessary. I liked the way you linked grammar (adjective, noun, verb) to illustrate the proper vocabulary.

      Thanks. I’ve been called rude when it comes to grammar many times.

    Hilarious. Reminds me of that saying: “Do you want to be right or do you want to be happy?”

        I used to be one of them, but I chose happiness instead. Yippee!

        I rationalise it this way: the purpose of language is to convey meaning. If I understand what the person is saying, does it matter if they were wrong?
