Not that one sees the word "ineffable" every day, as I did this morning in the NYT, but nowadays when I see it, it seems to have a whole new meaning, as if describing someone who...who what?
- can't be eff-ed with?
- is so out of your league, you could never dream of eff-ing them?
- is so ugly, you wouldn't dream of eff-ing them?
The word practically defies expression, it's like it's indescribable. It's practically, well, ineffable...old-school, that is.
