Today, Bob mulls over some intriguing points of linguistics, brought on by abstaining from food for some bloodwork:
Why is it called 'fasting' when time seems to be slowing between meals? Why is it 'fasting' when you do it voluntarily and 'starving' when someone else does it to you? When I eat a Wawa pork roll and cheese croissant melt and some frothy coffee combination for lunch to celebrate 'not fasting', should that be called 'quickening', like the King James Version of being born again?
And on a different note...when you run over a nail with your car, you get a flat tire. If you step on a nail, should you get a flat foot?When God provided Adam and Eve with 'skins' to cover their nakedness after the Fall, did Eve ask Adam if the outfit made her look fat? Could Adam even answer, since there was no standard for the phrase at the time?
Oh, and don't miss the Bobisms on the right sidebar!
I don't have the words.
