I have a friend, ok she's my wife, no not my wife, well kind of a cocubine, look it doesn't matter who it is. So this is an educational curriculum for people who only ever say "weird", or, "interesting", to approve or disapprove of things.

It would start out with a spectrum of other words that demonstrate the subtlety and nuance with which emotions can be described including, "educational, irritating, inspirational, entertaining, and other words that kind of resemble weird and interesting, so that the student can be inspired to explore their emotions.

       This is weird, but interesting.

       That you find this interesting, is weird. And also interesting in and of itself. Which is weird too.

       A conference on how to avoid the scam offering you your own concubine, would be a Concubine Con Con. Which is weird.

       The original idea here was to encourage creativity by allowing students of this curriculum to come up with their own solutions, like "weirducational", or, "interestating".

       Perhaps you need a brand new concubine harvester.   

       Within your existing resources, though, I suppose the problem is that (a) it's uncool to *sound* judgmental, whereas (b) it's a practical necessity to *be* judgmental, from time to time.   

       That explains the original semantic overloading of "weird" and "interesting", not to mention many other perversions of language.   

       Couldn't you just teach her to say "bun" or "bone", like normal people?

       // normal people //   

       We read the words, but the meaning escapes us ...
