It’s working! This classical education business is starting to sink in!
Yesterday evening I was washing dishes and thinking about a large knitting project that I recently started. Because of the week’s circumstances, and most importantly because I made the huge discovery that if I balance my kindle on my knee I can read AND knit, I’ve made a fair amount of progress on this monster endeavor. I was pretty happy with myself, and the following thought went through my head,
I’m knitting with great alacrity.
Yes! I thought the word alacrity. And don’t they always say that when you’ve really mastered a foreign language you begin to think in it as well as speak it? My friends, I’m mastering English! Hoorah!
Let’s not talk about how it’s my native tongue, okay?
