I could be older than I thought...oh no!!!

Just to tell you how busy I was, I’m going to show you something I saw after reading a newspaper which I had postponed from reading for more than a month. (and of course I procrastinated after seeing it, only telling you whatever I'm going to tell you now, 5 days later)

For those of you who don’t already know, our little country celebrated its 50th birthday more than a month ago. I could remember that it was the 50th not because of the fact that it was splattered all over the newspaper which I had just read last week – that paper happened to be the one on that particular day – but because almost everywhere had 50% sales in conjunction with it. Phew that was a long sentence. I almost suffocated. Sad thing the sales are over. I flipped the pages looking at the colourful ‘50%’ printed everywhere and could only grit my teeth. But that is beside the point. The point is…..

This



Ho ho! Sime Darby, are you sleeping? Whoever did that sure got the axe. I may be a month late in telling you this, but at least I’m not a year in advance. But then again….see this. So…maybe I should go dig up the paper and get you some pics of all those people who said 50th Merdeka? Well, I guess to be fair, nobody is wrong. The Chinese age is always older by a year right?

Did you mean "got fired" or "got his head chopped off with an axe"? Or both? Poor kid, heh.

Well, see... 1957 was the 1st Merdeka Day... so now 50 years later, it's the 51st Merdeka Day.

Caught my eye too. But when you think about it, they're right!!

JC - I meant to say got fired but they don't make much difference haha!

CY - So all those people who said Happy 50th Merdeka should get the axe. I think we're gonna need a lot of axe...s? Damn what's the plural of axe? I remember doing this in primary school grammar!

CY said...

Those that say Happy 50th Merdeka are not wrong also... Maybe they thought the 1st one was sad, you know xD

Don't worry about the plural of ax. I think it's axes, but isn't that the plural of axis too? Hahaha! See, you started this!

runawaycat said...

Haha! Perhaps!

Why shouldn't I worry about the plural of axe? Huh? Huh? Why?

CY said...

Because the linguist side of me will awaken and regale you with so much English, you'll make a conscious effort to have nothing to do with it for at least a month xD

runawaycat said...

Try me :P

CY said...

Plural of axe should be axes.

However, if in doubt, you can always write "many an axe" and still be grammatically correct! ;)

runawaycat said...

I'm still fine. Not making any conscious effort to stay away from English :P

runawaycat said...

Really? Never heard of, I think.

CY said...

One ax is ax. If two, you have ax-ax. Three is ax-ax-ax xD

runawaycat said...

Oh dear...Amuse me more :P

CY said...

Nah, people seldom go beyond ax-ax-ax xD

Besides a serial killer, perhaps.
