Don't mess with Night-time Hope!
Jean, I know it's a folio, you know it's a folio... but we both also know (I think) that guys and some gals don't talk accurately 100 percent of the time. People call Macs PCs (personal computer, not realizing that's a Windows term); people have been known to be lazy and call binders "folders." It's just a lazy, human thing that people do. I can honestly say I've never heard a person, outside of a TV show, and frankly, today, actually use the word "folio."
I HAVE a folio. Would I ever call it that? No. Because it's not everyday language. I know what it is, but I'd never call it that. See what I mean? It doesn't roll off the tongue like "book," or "folder" or "file" or something like that.
Having said that, as I mentioned in the post, if, for argument's sake, we agreed it would be natural to call it a folio, I will always maintain that adding "leather" in front of it -- twice no less! -- is pushing it so far it becomes bad writing.
The only example I could think it's natural is "leather pants." Not too many people have 'em, so when you need to distinguish, you just have to say "leather" in front of it.
But back to my planner. It's leather... I would NEVER, EVER call it that in front of someone. It just seems like I'd be showing off. "Ooh, I have a LEATHER planner... Well, big FUCKING deal that you have a LEATHER planner!" someone might respond, adding, "I'll alert PETA, bitch! Then we'll see who's bragging!"
So there's ANOTHER reason why Bo and Hope should keep their voices down and quit all the "leather" chit-chat. Before they even get to find out the DiMera secret, Kathy Najimy or another PETA rep will grab a hold of it and hold it hostage in their body cavity.
But I digress. "Leather" killed the church script for me.
