Daily writing prompts since June 9th, 2008
Yesterday I realised that Russian sometimes just changes the case the words are in instead of applying a preposition, which explains some occasional confusion I've had about trying to find the right preposition to express something. (The other problem is that Russian, more than any other language I've learned, is as bad as English about which preposition to use. Trying to work out "for" requires me usually to run through 5 options.)ElephantsSkiing elephantsHave brightened the Olympics...They go curling next!--------Broken ivoryLines the graveyard's path.
