Trying to learn English would be like memorizing the times tables if every so often, for no rational reason whatsoever, math wouldn’t follow the rules. You know like, “Yes. Normally seven times three would be 21, but because those numbers are prime numbers you have to double it. So seven times three is actually 42. Which works as a rule, unless the product is divisible by 3 in which case you don’t double it, you just add three.” That’s the kind of crazy stuff we do in English all the time and even though we know it’s crazy, we still make up rhymes to help students remember those messed up rules (even though the rhymes only work like half the time so the students wind up memorizing the exceptions). If you’re fed up with all the weirdness of English, then you’ll love this post.

I'm a married, stay at home mother of 4, with a lot of crazy going on. Being a parent is so rewarding, but very exhausting! Ha! My husband is a musician/entrepreneur with a lot going on, so I manage most of the day to day and happen to find a lot of humor in all the chaos. If the choice is laugh or cry, I'll choose laugh every time. :)
