Butter-Fly?

I’ve been thinking about the word lately and it has given me quite a bit of confusion.  They are these beautiful insects, right?  Well, why do we call them butterflies?  They don’t look like flies and they have nothing to do with butter.  I’m really getting quite annoyed with the English language.  What is including butter in the name doing for us?  Are we implying that they are overweight?  Who are we to say that a butterfly has clogged arteries?  Where does that leave us?  Uhhhh!!!

Another thing that is frustrating is that I can’t take Drivers-Ed until next spring and I won’t be getting my license until the summer before junior year.  I’m such a baby!

My Conscience…

Yesterday (pardon my french) was a screwed up day! Ask Ashley? Though, I had no shortage of laughter ever during my classes I was constantly being “slow.” In Ms. Mattson’s a girl that Ms. Jeness said was from the “far east” (meaning her classroom) came in and I immediately thought she was really from Africa, the Middle East, or Southwestern Asia. So, when I was talking to Ashley about it during lunch and planning to complement her on her fluent English I was humiliated. Gash!!! I’m crazy. As if that wasn’t enough, on the way home as I was walking across the playground I truthfully thought that what was really my sister was my dog sitting in the car? What is wrong with me? Salami sandwiches don’t have high amounts of sugar and intelligent strainers in them, do they?

(There is no picture crazy and funny enough to describe my feelings of yesterday’s episode right now, I apologize.)
