Re: Hot Chocolate Anyone ?

Love it @Smc! You could rewrite it for ye modern times! Smiley Wink

Re: Hot Chocolate Anyone ?

@Ali11, yeah but ye olde English is fun to read. Smiley Happy For me, anyway. I enjoy languages, and the older versions of English show where our own has come from. English is crazily mixed up compared to a lot of languages. For some reason, everyone seemed to want to invade that rainy little country. Smiley Tongue I can guarantee, in this one post, there will be words from Greek, Latin and Middle English (Continental French-ish), and probably others too. Saxon, Norman, Germanic, who knows??


Re: Hot Chocolate Anyone ?

That is so true @Smc, they say that English is the hardest language to learn, do you agree?

Re: Hot Chocolate Anyone ?

@Ali11, it's probably true. It's a very inconsistent language, and very obvious when someone gets it "wrong".


Re: Hot Chocolate Anyone ?

@Smc whenever someone is learning English I think of how tricky those little sayings are, like "I deserted my dessert in the desert", or "We wear our wares to the weir, where we were last week", "Here is the heir's hair". But learning about verbs in any of the romance languages is tough too, or the tones in Cantonese, over 50,000 kanji in Japanese and over 85,000 in Chinese. Languages are fascinating. It'd be incredible to speak four or five languages.

Re: Hot Chocolate Anyone ?

I saw that this morning @Darcy  and was going to post but got sidetracked 😥

I loved grumpy cat. 

Re: Hot Chocolate Anyone ?

I had similar trouble at my polling booth @Determined

They put me in the waiting line for the one person who could not find anyone's name one the electoral roll.

So it was a very long (unnecessary) wait.

In the meantime everyone in the other waiting ques had already voted, ahead of me.
