"Nouniness" LO24137

Replying to LO24120 --

Yeah, and not only that but some nouns are wasted as nouns and ought to be
verbs. My favorite example is the noun "shrub." Unless you're a
landscaper, how often do you use this wonderful word? But just think how
often it could be used as a verb:

"Shrub off, buddy!"
"Whatcha doin'?" "Oh, just shrubbin' around."
"Shrub you, Jack!"
"How will we ever get this done?" "We'll shrub a little here and shrub a
little there; we'll shrub a little now and we'll shrub a little later."

Well, you get the idea. I'll shrub off for now.
