Object. Noun or verb? I object to objects being used to control or manipulate others. Objects can be exceedingly objectionable (and is that an adjective?) in those situations. English can be a puzzling language at times. To be given a writing prompt such as “object” is frustrating. My brain is overheating. The courtroom attorney of my imagination is screaming “Objection your honor. The object in question is inadmissible evidence.”
Alright. So my literary engine is coughing and spluttering. Time for coffee.
