Wow, another strange disparity of different meanings…"throwing".
I grew up knowing that "throwing" meant "hurling a ball" or "hurling rotten tomatoes" at or to somebody or something.
But we have also come to know someone who is "throwing" a PARTY. And we want to be there.
Of course, at some parties there's a lot of throwing going on, much to the dismay of the host/hostess and anyone who has to clean up.
