Memes for a Monday

but on a Tuesday!

Unfortunately life, yes faithful reader I have something resembling a life, got in the way yesterday so I am a day late. Perhaps I should re-title this post Toons for a Tuesday??

I was looking for a picture that I thought I had of my Warsaw days (1998-2001) when I was teaching English at Polish Military Headquarters. I am lined up with the group of Generals who were my students. I know it’s somewhere amongst the many thousands of digital photos spread out over four or five hard drives.

But I digress! I thought of it as I was looking at a series of memes highlighting the dog’s breakfast that is English and the question oft posed by students: WHY? Now usually I would enter a witty, wise, or puerile comment before each one but I think I’ll just let them speak for themselves.

Okay! First, you knew I wouldn’t be able to be quiet that long. And second, you knew there had to be a canine one!

And lest there be any doubt that English is the language of Chaucer, Shakespeare, Milton, the King James Bible and parrots I give you:

The word for May 16th is:
Digress /dīˈɡres/: [verb]
To leave the main subject temporarily in speech or writing.
Early 16th century: from Latin digress- ‘stepped away’, from the verb digredi, from di- ‘aside’ + gradi ‘to walk’.
