On The English Language

Hi. Today I was thinking about how weird the english language is.

Let me explain. Say you exclaim 'don't you dare' to someone, sounds pretty normal, right? But then, when you bear in mind that 'don't' is a contraction of the words 'do not' so technically, you are saying.....


This is the same for 'can't' in some circumstances, like 'why can't you pick up the book today?' which is, of course, 'why can not you pick up the book today?'

In conclusion, the english language is weird. I forgot to thank you guys before, but thank you for 10 followers! I know it sounds small but it means a lot to me. Anyway, I hope you are having a great day.

Do you think the english language is weird? What's the weirdest word/contraction that you've come across?

A Random Post *jazz hands*

So.... Uh, hello again *waves*. I hope you remember me. I'm Rose. Yup, great! So, I guess I should probably get on with whatever the hell I'm posting... a random post, floating in all the other posts of the blogging community. A ramble, if you will. About really nothing. I have literally written what, 3 lines about absolutely nothing, and I totally intend to write more. Though it won't be a particularly long post. OK, Allons-y!

What I'm reading hmmm... Well, as I devoured books in March like a reading MONSTER, I intend to read that amount or more in April.

I have read 2 books so far in April, Geek Girl #5 by Holly Smale and The Tides Of Time by Zana Bell. They were both fairly quick reads. Currently, I am reading Daughter Of Smoke And Bone by Laini Taylor and Vampire Academy #1 by Richelle Mead.

Well, I told you it wouldn't be a long post. So, bye-bye!
