We all enjoy getting mail, and Gulliver enjoys sending postcards. Since February 4 is a special day for postal workers, Gulliver thought you might enjoy this article about how a foreign exchange student learned the American system of postal service. Enjoy!
A Post Office Experience
I went sailing recently, and learned some new words – sailor’s language they called it. This little cat thinks English is a crazy language. Did you know that there is no egg in eggplant, no ham in hamburger, and neither apple or pine in pineapple? Why do humans have noses that run and feet that smell? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? One goose, two geese, so one moose, two meese? English muffins weren’t created in England, and French fries are not French. I think I will stick to a simple Meow! Purrs, Gulliver
Take a look at this article to see where English lacks word for certain ideas or emotions.
Emotions that have no translation into English
Gulliver is continuing to explore technology as well as the world, so he is posting some of his postcards on Instagram. Follow him for more adventures!
