Words I Don’t Understand (or Beware the Ides of March)

Did you know today is the Ides of March? Do you know why you are supposed to beware the Ides of March?

On a totally unrelated note, happy birthday to my big sister. She was born on the Ides of March. I don’t think that is why you are supposed to beware it, though.

Want to know what I’m talking about? Go here.

Yesterday, I wrote about words I really love. Now it’s time for the words I just don’t understand!

Sometimes I don’t know what they mean.

Sometimes I don’t like how they sound.

And sometimes, they just make me mad.
