A little ballad for the “interesting” times we live in.
The word for January 12th is:
Interesting /ˈint(ə)rəstiNG/: [adjective]
Arousing curiosity or interest; holding or catching the attention.
late Middle English (originally as interess ): from Anglo-Norman French interesse, from Latin interesse ‘differ, be important’, from inter- ‘between’ + esse ‘be’. The -t was added partly by association with Old French interest ‘damage, loss’, apparently from Latin interest ‘it is important.”
