WHAT IS YESTERDAY ?
more participants at Jenny Matlock's Alphabet Thursday
To find a word with Y and knit a story around is not an easy task ! Finally I found "Yesterday". Because yesterday seems to be so far away according to the Beatles. This is true because sometimes I don't remember what I have done yesterday, but I remember what I did 20 or 30 years ago on a yesterday when it precedes a special date. But then I would rather say the day before...
Yesterday has several explanations according to Mr. Google who always helps me out !
I learned that the day before today is the child of yesterday and the parent of tomorrow ! Think it over I am slightly confused in these today's relatives relationships.
It's also a warning : the clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present." I would add tomorrow which would then be the future.
And then to end my Yesterday effusions I just want to ask you "Are you born yesterday ?"
Because that is a way of saying someone is naive - if you were born yesterday, you are a baby with no experience. Usually people say 'NOT born yesterday' to indicate they cannot be fooled.
When people say, "I wasn't born yesterday," they're indicating that they do not believe a story/excuse made by someone else. They are saying that they can see past a given story and see what is really going on.
Now you know all about yesterday !
