You've got a temperature a hundred and ten!
Do you know what word is weird? Folk. There is a church here that puts little quotes or sayings on its reader board, and one for this week says "Many folks want to work for God, but just as advisors." Or something like that. But it says "many folkS." Is that right? I think folk, singular, already means more than one person, so is "many folks" being a little redundant, or is it just many groups of people? hm, but after I read it, I spent the rest of the drive home thinking this in my head, as well as saying folk over and over, slowly and in different ways you might pronounce it. Just say folk about 26 times in your head slowly, and progressing to out loud, then you'll see how weird it is. You'll probably start wanting to pronounce the silent L and what not. But yeah, I spent a lot of time driving today, and that was just one of the things I pondered!!! Whew!
