Where has the week gone? I haven’t been anywhere near the shops or cafes all week. How is one to come up with a decent menu? Let alone the plural menus.
I did a bit of word research a couple of weeks ago when I first noticed what the topic was this week. Then, of course, forgot all about it.
Word History: An enormous menu might be considered an oxymoron if one were to restrict the word etymologically. Menu can be traced back to the Latin word mintus, meaning "small in size, amount, or degree" and also "possessing or involving minute knowledge."
(I love that last bit. Describes me me perfectly on this topic.)
So, no oxymorons around here, thank you. No “thinking man” (thank you for that GB).
As close as I come to a menu at The Paddock is something like this:
Crackers and muffins are usually on the menu at this time of day but the cracker jar is empty:
And someone threw out the last muffin:
Never mind, I’m sure the rest of the FSO team will have some wonderful menus to show you! I look forward to seeing what Sara Williams has come up with. She chose the topic! (I wish I could think of some devilish topic suggestion to get you back for this, Sara!! But a cup of tea is on my menu right now and I’ll feel better after that.)
