I'm studying Spanish. I love Spanish. I don't really love how much time studying it eats up, but I love it anyway.
Last semester I couldn't write upside-down question marks at all. They were puny, scraggly, sick looking scribbles with a dot on top. Next to the graceful dancers that are my right-side-up question marks, they were sad and sorry creatures indeed.
Today in class I wrote out a bunch of questions in Spanish. Which, if you were unaware of but probably weren't, begin with upside-down question marks.
What happened? My upside-down question marks are beautiful! They're like abstract sculptures. Their grace takes my breath away and makes me dizzy with happiness.
They must have had a growth spurt during winter break.
