A Romantic Thought

I attended a small high school in a small town when I was boy. It was a good school, because it had a core of dedicated and intelligent teachers who were so… so grown up! When it came to the quality of education I was afforded, I have never felt I had any but the best. Where my small school did fall short was the breadth of the curriculum. Among other things, we were not introduced to Latin, which, when I was young, was still considered an important part of a classic education at many schools. Really! In fact, we had no language studies at all. I regret that; I think I would have been good at it. What does this have to do with anything? Well, to most of us a “manger” is a place for animals to eat, as well as the centerpiece for Nativity scenes. It is also the verb “to eat” in the Romantic language French. I’m sure this has something to do with Latin roots, but I wouldn’t know. I didn’t take Latin.
