The Good Ol’ Days

12 May

I have no dagguereotype to prove it, but I bet our ancestors, whether quadroons or not, didn’t have so much superfluous chattel, although it may still have caused them diffidence before their compeers.

It’s an easy week – only five words.  Take them and run:

    You do a great job with these vocabulary sentences! : ) I tried to write one, but I feel too much diffidence to post it!

    Oh, I’m a specialist in diffidence! But really, I have it easy, because I get first shot at the words, and sometimes it seems like they’ll only fall into specific patterns.

    Hmmmm . . . maybe in the future I should just list the words and make everyone else right the sentences! 😉

    If, among my chattel, I come across a dagguereotype of a quadroon ancestor it may be the cause of some shock among my compeers, but hopefully not a diffidence on my part. Wait a minute – isn’t there a television show based on that idea?

      Maybe that’s how they came up with the idea for the show, some goofy friend made them put together a sentence with UTC vocab.

    Which TV show are you talking about? By the way, guess what I got for Mother’s Day? My son had the idea to take me to our beloved used bookstore, and we hunted out some of the books on the WEM list. I chose nice copies of The Scarlet Letter, Moby Dick, (I still need to catch up on the books I skipped) and Madame Bovary! : ) I was so happy. Hope you all had a great Mother’s Day!

    I know of two tv shows that trace a person’s geneology: “Who do you think you are?” and pbs’s “Finding Your Roots”.

    What a thoughtful mother’s day gift!

    I was thinking of “Who Do You Think You Are.” I’ve never actually watched it, but have seen a few previews with celebrities investigating their past and finding out interesting secrets.
