There is no unalloyed joy.









I wonder how I have missed this expression "unalloyed joy." Google registers 14,900 results. Practically a cliché. But not for me. The Word for the Day is "unalloyed" used with concepts.

un·al·loyed
adj.
  1. Not in mixture with other metals; pure.
  2. Complete; unqualified: unalloyed blessings; unalloyed relief.
Coincindentally, there are only four mentions of "There is no unalloyed joy." And Bad Texas is currently link number one. Yes. Google it and you will see. Perhaps. Google is such a mystery.
