I'm either seeing an uptick in how many people think "artful" means "artistic" or I'm seeing a surge in the use of the rarer second definition of 'skilled, expert'. Strangely, it is proving very hard to tell which I'm looking at. The uncertainty inherent in that has generated a mixed bag of emotions. I don't know whether to smile and nod or roll my eyes.
