Easy Chicken Thighs, Slow Cooker; reading the classics — 6 Comments

  1. I had a masochistic english teacher in high school who decided, with the right key, we could all translate one of the very old gaelic classics (which was translated over a century ago!) and gave us the year to do it. I gave it a shot, but by the end of the year, most of the kids in class had either cheated and bought the english version or didn’t bother to do the assignment. It was a long time before I enjoyed the classics again. I’ve read many though and yes, I enjoy everything Shakespeare except his sonnets. I’m not a poetry lover at all.

    • I had to learn / memorize the first page or 2 of the Canterbury Tales in Middle English…. I still remember the opening line. Some teachers really know how to spoil reading lol

  2. I’m sorry to say I’ve read very few of the classics. My high school lit classes had us reading a lot of Charles Dickens but I don’t remember much else. I go through reading mysteries at times but right now I seem to be into most biographies and history … well and cookbooks especially ones that bring in stories.
