I’m going back!
150 years ago (and two months and twelve days) my great, great, great grandmother sailed from England to America.
And in two weeks, I’m going back!
What should I bring with me?
Hmm, maybe some suntan lotion… my bathing suit… a book…
Oh! And how about:
Their Terrible English Spelling!
I can’t escape it!
It seems every time I leave the house, I see a sign that says “olde” instead of “old.”
Or “towne” instead of “town.”
“Thyme” instead of “time.”
I see them used by businesses that are trying to advertise that they are old, historic and English.
I think it just says, “We don’t know how to use spellcheck.”
Here’s the latest sign I found…
Did Shakespeare really eat tacos?
I don’t think so!
Do You Have A Message For The English?
So when I return to Europe at the end of the month, my first stop will be England.
After I ask them why they can’t spell, I’ll tell them to take back their extra vowels.
Is there anything you’d like me to tell the English?
Maybe a question about their illogical grammar?
Or a comment about their crazy pronunciation that doesn’t match their spelling?
If yes, share in the comments below.
