wednesday night (nachtwacht, mulligans) i was talking with kees about the gravity of shwa, how all spoken language seems to slip away from enunciation and toward shwa. and he made an interesting joke by imitating a cow. sound of a cow isn't really "moo" or "boe", it's not even a real vowel, just "uhhh". i forget exactly what he said, but the idea was cows used to be shakespeare before they succumbed to their shwa craving. dus. let op, jongens. this could happen to you.
this afternoon i was riding around in a fast sportscar, stopping here and there to survey staircases.
