I love the memes that make you laugh at yourself. And I love coming across something I didn’t know or had never noticed.

How many times have you heard someone say, “I’m unthawing a roast for dinner.” Think about it. To thaw, to defrost, soften. So if someone unthaws an item, they freeze it.

Nauseous and nauseated do NOT have the same meaning. The next time you tell someone “I’m nauseous,” think again.
Vocabulary.com described the difference: If you’re nauseated you’re about to throw up, if you’re nauseous, you’re a toxic funk and you’re going to make someone else puke. These words are used interchangeably so often that it makes word nerds feel nauseated!
