The thesaurus was an intelligent, terrible, horrible, unpleasant dinosaur known worldwide for his knowledge of words of all kind. But no matter how much you hate it, you have to admit that The Thesaurus is the best! Because he’s so handy and nice to have around, at your desk, just at your elbow, or your fingertips, right up there on the shelf whenever you need him.
And he can save you from disaster when writing a story where you might use the same word over and over. Agree?
