I’m 33 years old. I’ve known my ABCs since I was three. I write daily, I read constantly. I’ve edited. I’ve gone to college. I’ve worked in the banking industry. I look down my nose at those who move their lips while reading.
Why can I not remember that R comes before S without singing the alphabet song.
I think its because S is the superior letter. Really, R has nothing on S and I guess in my mind S should therefore come before R. This does not mean that I think all the letters before R are better than S. This is an R/S only thing.
This is really making my German/English dictionary usage difficult. And my classmates are getting tired of the noise. Abcdefg hijkelemenopee qurs… The tune does not work in german, either.
I have a test on Friday that I need to pass in order to move on to the next level. Therefore, blogging time is in short supply this week.
Bloggers meet up was really fun. Green Haddock and his wife are wonderful hosts. Christina is as sweet in person as she is in type. And J, well, J is either the nicest man I’ve ever met or a serial killer. He’s that charming and disarming.
Those who missed it really missed out. I mean really missed out. All the bloggers that showed up received 1000€. Now aren’t your really sad you didn’t get up early?
