Hemingway and James Joyce were drinking buddies in Paris. Joyce was thin and bespectacled; Hemingway was tall and strapping. When they went out Joyce would get drunk, pick a fight with a bigger guy in the bar and then hide behind Hemingway and yell, “Deal with him, Hemingway. Deal with him.”

Between this and the story about him reassuring F. Scott Fitzgerald re dick size, I’m developing a picture of Hemingway as the mother hen of the disaffected white male literary set of the early 20th century.

Commonly Confused Words

Fewer: If you can count it, use ‘fewer’

eg: We have fewer cakes than we need.

Less: If you can’t count it, use ‘less’

eg: I have less respect for you now.

Yes. This one is a big pet peeve of mine. Less also applies to collective nouns. So, less money but fewer dollars. Less weight but fewer kilograms.

I’m glad you posted it so I can do it fewer often.
