Well, this prompt is very…timely. Bwahahahaha! Sorry, folks, bit punchy today and even I know that wasn’t particularly funny especially since some of you don’t peek at the bottom of the post so you don’t know the prompt is day/week/month/year which means this really hasn’t hit your funny bone. Ugh. A swing and a miss. Let’s start again.
I’d talk about the whole covid-is-messing-with-my-sense-of-time thing but I feel like I’ve done that one before, probably more than once, so nope. Try again. HEY! Got it.
Nothing screams the English language makes no sense like trying to learn how to spell the months of the year. Like February. What kind of sense does it make that a word that sounds like Feb-you-ary has a random R stuck in the middle? Okay, then, I guess February is the worst of them. But can we talk about Wednesday? We’re always tell the littles “try sounding it out!” but that’s how they end up with “Wed-nes-day? Wed-knees-day? We-duh-nees-day? I DON’T KNOW, JUST TELL ME HOW TO SAY IT.” It’s not like Tuesday’s any better. How on earth is someone supposed to get twos-day out of Tu-es-day? It’s madness, I tell you.
But that’s just my two cents on it.
Linda hosts Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week’s prompt is “day/week/month/year.” Use one, use them all, use them any way you’d like. Enjoy!
