A few questions came up last night that I thought I’d share. One was why is a church erected and a building built? The other was how many times does one pee during the average lifetime? Deep thoughts indeed. I also wondered why it is that our language doesn’t cover emotions very well. We speak about sadness and happiness and blah blah blah, but there aren’t words for the more abstract, yet commonly felt emotions, such as
the happiness or release felt when someone sick passes away?
the smell of bread or that first sip of coffee?
being able to go back to sleep on a Saturday after forgetting to turn of the work-week alarm
. I’m just wondering. I know it’s a silly thought compared to how many times one urinates. There aren’t words to really describe actual emotions and I know they exist in other languages. I wish I knew it all, or at the very least, could know the differences. But tell me, was the English language designed by cold-hearted, unfeeling bastards or what?
