I was apologizing to my friend Darnell for my slow response to her email, and I saw that I had written:
I have a mountain of email to dig out from under.
As you may or may not know, an alleged Churchillian quote is this one:
That is the sort of nonsense up with which I shall not put!
Churchill was actually not being a grammar snob but was, in fact, responding to an editor's correction of one of his sentences that ended with a preposition. The correction, apparently, resulted in a rather ridiculous sentence so Churchill responded in kind.
Sir Winston Churchill died 50 years ago last week, so in honor of his memory, (and wit) I hereby dedicate this sentence:
I have a mountain of email out from under which I must dig.
Rest in peace, Churchy. You were da' Bomb.
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
