Upon, among, whatever, let’s grill

Thank you, friend Carol G., for this find from the North Shore of Massachusetts.

“Among” is a preposition which can mean in, into, or through the midst of; in association or connection with; surrounded by; with a share for each of; in the number, class, or group of; of or out of; by all or with the whole of; by most or with many of; or by the joint or reciprocal action of.

None of which work with connecting grilling season to us.

Grilling season is definitely upon us, friends. Not among. Upon.

Go thou and grill heartily. (And take several of these folks’ delicious sausages on the way. I’m sure they don’t really intend you to limit yourself to just one.)

One thought on “Upon, among, whatever, let’s grill

  1. It’s evocative, though, the personification of the grilling season among us. It stalks me at the grocery store, it infiltrates the grocery store ads, it nags me about not grilling.
