Oxymorons are not thick bovines, but two words, with opposite meanings, linked together to form a descriptive phrase. As an example, golfers play with metal woods.

Take a word from the top list, pair it with a word from the second, and find all 7 oxymorons.

LIST ONE: fine, dry, awfully, slipped, sweet, good, standing

LIST TWO: jump, good, sorrow, sherry, drizzle, up, grief
