Do you like poetry? There are lots of poetic sounding words in the English language. Butterfly, for example, is a really pretty word.
You know another word that sounds really poetic to me lately? Free. That’s music to my ears.
There are two free things on the list this week, along with a chance to win a free trip to L.A., Orlando, or Vegas.
There is also something on the list this week that is 1¢, which is as close to free as you can get without actually being free.
Another beautiful word is “cheap,” or the slightly classier version, “inexpensive.” There’s tons of that this week too. I also like the words “Razorback football.”
It doesn’t get much more poetic than that. Here’s what’s new from Local540 this week.
