a to z challenge, 2018…..yep. almost done. down to the wire. only a bit more………..how many more euphemisms can I find?
Todays’ letter is “V”. Now Latin has only 47 bazillion words that start with V. Yes it does…I counted them!
Okay, that was a total lie…I counted the ones listed in the back of my high school Latin book about ten bazillion years ago and came up with “there’s a LOT!”. I know, I should just PICK one already and get to it.
But……where to start?
I don’t want to pick a non-word-of-a-word like Via and do that……everyone can figure out Via…and know it is a street, cause it is a street in other languages too. See? boring!
So I need to pick a V word that will interest everyone…even the guys that read this tripe…….
Time to get those minds out of the gutter now!
Vacua (masculine is Vacuum)
Here…let me give you a sentence to show exactly what it could mean………..
BUCINUM capitis vacuum est, et non est dignus spongem.
(loosely translated as “Trump is an airhead and not worthy of even being a sponge”.)
