A Penny For Your Thoughts

COLD CROCK? DOODLESS?

Last week in “Pennies” I wrote about how difficult it can be to speak the English language. We take English in school and it was always my favorite subject.

Back in my day, we used to diagram sentences. We would draw lines for the subject, predicate and descriptive words. Then we would take the words from the sentence and put it where it belonged on the lines.

We actually had races between students to see who could diagram a sentence the quickest. I will say I was pretty good at it, mainly because I love words and talking, which of course goes hand-in-hand.
