Say What Friday

Greetings all!

Happy Friday!!

Another week in the history books.

This week's quote is a commentary on the lovely English language.

"Any language where the unassuming word fly signifies an annoying insect, a means of travel and a critical part of a gentleman's apparel is clearly asking to be mangled."

Bill Bryson, The Mother Tongue

Do with it what you can.
