The Double Meaning of the Word FIXED
Well those who speak the English language are all too familiar with double meanings . A bear can be an animal or a difficult task. A ham can be a smoked butt portion of a pig or an attention-seeking clown.
So how does the word FIXED have a double meaning? Oh, rest assured, it DOES have a double meaning...
Fixed can refer to the restoration or repair of a malfunctioning mechanism or object. Or...
Well, you take your male cat to the veterinarian. Why? Because you don't want every female cat in the city bearing litters of kittens! So you remove its testicles. Sometimes I refer to this as saying, in effect: "Your goose is cooked. They've FIXED you!" Yeah, the cat thinks. They've fixed me good alright.
But there's also a FIXED income. It's what I'm on. And, "Yeah, they've fixed me good alright!"
