Another Strange But True Story

Posted on November 29, 2016 at 5:44 PM Comments comments (2)
A lady I know, about sixtyish, had her thirteen-year-old grandson after school. "Grandma," he said to her, "I have homework. You have to take me home."

"What do you need?" she asked him.

"I have to look up the definitions of some words," he said.

"I have a dictionary upstairs," she replied.

So he goes upstairs and she hears him walking around. "Grandma, you don't have a computer up here," he calls.

She finds him and hands him an actual dictionary. "Wow," he said. "I had no idea that someone actually wrote all this stuff down."

A Tangled Web of Words

I was reading the paper this morning when I came across this letter to the editor:

"Lest we forget, the inception of this country was not only in an environment of dissent, but in violent and deadly dissent....The documentation of that violent and deadly dissent is enshrined in the much-hallowed Constitution, misconstrued as a tribute to a Christian fundamental but challenged as an acknowledgement of the "Age of Reason" and the Masonic influence. There are so many fallacies and hypocrisies in the promulgation of the inception of this country, and unearthing them can be quite complex (sans the benefit of context, which is often lacking when history is taught). However, one must remember that complexity is simply intertwined simplicity: just follow a single thread in the ball of twine to reach the underlying fundamental."

Wow. This explains THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE and everything in it...but I've never found a fundamental in a ball of twine. Obviously I'm not looking hard enough. And you gotta give props where they're due--how many of you have ever used "promulgation" in a sentence?
