So you've just learned the term "opportunity cost", have you? That's great. I've seen many, many people using that term around the internet lately. One of them used it in a way that made me think "yes, that makes their point clearer" and not "someone has a dictionary and isn't sharing".

Remember, just because you can use a fancy term doesn't mean you should. I'm firmly of the opinion that when you sacrifice clarity for making yourself look clever, your writing has lost something.

There's a term for that, I'm sure.

I'm chomping at the bit to say that I'm nonplussed, but that would just be begging the question.
