All the English You Will Ever Need

The English language is constantly evolving, both the words we use and the rules that control the usage of those words.  Therefore, it is impossible to ever have a definitive grammar guide, or, if you will, a Complete Guide of American English.  And that’s our excuse.

 

 

Word of the Every So Often

December 14, 2018 

albedo:  (noun)  the light reflected off a surface, usually that of a planet or moon, measured on a scale of zero to one, zero being completely non-reflective (such as black), and one being completely reflective (such as a mirror).  Sir, we're going to have to ask you to put on your hat.  The albedo off of your head is disturbing the other fans.

Today is the First Day of the Rest of Your Life

Then does that mean that yesterday was the last day of the first of my life?  Whew!  Glad to get that over with.  And does that mean tomorrow will be the second day of the rest of my life?   Seriously:  If every day can be the first day of the rest of your life, when does the rest of your life ever begin?  It’s like yelling, “Do over!” and reshuffling the cards after every turn in Solitaire.  I suppose you can, and I suppose it’s as good a way to waste time as playing Solitaire to begin with.  And, I suppose, you’ll never lose.  But unless you start turning over those cards, you’re never going to win, either.
