A nice weekend..and,for a change, our first day at work is a Monday, like the rest of the world outside the Gulf. (And, of course,it'll end a day earlier, on Thursday..haha)
"Greetings! How is it going?" says Santa.
"Wonderful!" says Banta, "I have discovered an important fact about the local language! Watch!"
He points at a palm tree and says, "What is that?"
The natives, in unison, say, "Umbalo-gong!"
He then points at a rock and says, "And that?"
The natives again intone, "Umbalo-gong!"
"You see!", says the beaming Banta, "They use the SAME word for 'rock' and for 'palm tree'!"
"That is truly amazing!" says the astonished Santa, "On the other island, the same word means 'index finger'!"
And,ohh,yes,I plan to be much more regular in posting, now.Just realized that it's six days since the last post. So, help me keep my resolve.:)
