Sorry Is Not The Hardest Word: a rant.

About four times a week I go past a garage with a sign outside it which reads:


WE ARE SORRY 
WE ARE NOT 
OPEN 
ON SUNDAYS

I don't believe them, you know.

Word To Use Today: sorry. This word comes from the Old English sārig. It's connected to the word sore, which is connected to the Latin saevus, which means angry.
