Where's the nearest chain to you?
Will you spot it round someone's neck?
In a fence?
Attached to a padlock?
Or will you see just one link of it, as in a chain store?
Or perhaps you'll see something a chain in length, such as a cricket pitch (that's 20.12 m long).
It has been said (by Jean-Jacques Rousseau) that man is born free but that everywhere he is in chains.
What do yours look like?
And are they comfortable?
Spot the Frippet: chain. The Old French form of this word was chaine. Before that the word is probably connected with the Latin word for chain, which is catena.
