Bookstopoo & Hapitoubimi : Chronicle 48

We’re at the beginning of a heatwave in France today. Sort of. Well, all my windows opened… as France fights Argentina for the football World Cup. I don’t need to watch it, because I can hear all the city screaming each time France scores a goal. 4-2 we won!

______

How to tell about something which happened only one time, yet comes within the scope of a series?

______

“How to catch what moves, generates, leaks, becomes, invents, slips, spurges… instead of  contemplating what we think is fixe, immuable, eternal, stable, immobile?”

______

Bookstopoo should be the title of a book I’ll write one day : a LIST of good books you should have in your toilets (why in the world do you call this “restroom”??).

______

Obedient to rules, no one can invent.

______

You remember the past. The good things or the bad things?

______

It’s called Hapitoubimi. What kind of animal is this?

______

I learned about this idiom, “dodge a bullet“, it’s great!

Urban Dictionary says “If someone has dodged a bullet, they have successfully avoided a very serious problem.”, that makes sense, thought I wonder, as an ESL, what is the color of it : is it by cowardice or because you’re smart? Is it effectiveness and skillfulness, or is it, when you dodge a bullet, because you’re a lazy coward? When do you use it?

Well, I ask this because I understood also that “dodge” is something which is simply “not right”, and I found many sarcastic things about Dodge City. I also remember in Deliverance (the movie) the talking about “an old Dodge” – sounded “old wreck”.

Other words I discovered with pleasure :

  1. Honeycomb
  2. Tit for tat
  3. Betwixt

 

Have a nice day!
