A witty morsel from one of my kids

We (mostly me) were discussing how English is mostly a conglomeration of words that come from many different languages and cultures, how many if not most words are "stolen" from Latin & Greek roots. Without blinking an eyelash, the child whose focusing skills I often question declares, "So basically we're all speaking a bootlegged language??"

I'm so proud of my little general puppies! :-)

P.S. Ben and I both stayed up "late" to watch Michael Phelps' final swim, and Ben and I both admitted that we were nervous for him during the race. Seriously? We were nervous? I know that my stomach was twisting a bit.
