Beyond the Pale
When was the last time you did something completely new and out of your element? How was it? Will you do it again?
A more pressing question would be, When was the last time the Daily Prompt did something completely new?
But we’re all sick of asking that question and being ignored.
And if we’re me, we’re also sick of WP misusing common sayings. Beyond the pale means outside normal social boundaries, and not completely new and out of your element. Just as Mad as a hatter (a few weeks ago) means nutso, not angry.
But hey, I’m also realistic. WP has money, and thus power. I am nobody, in their terms. So who’s going to win here?
Shaking them until their teeth rattled would certainly be something new for me, and out of my element. And I’d certainly enjoy it. But would I do it again? Doubtful. Prosecutors are elected. What prosecutor wouldn’t relish the thought of racking up a few brownie points with WP by sticking me behind bars?
