Default Edu-macated.


Education never sets off a spark;
Like it could ne’er be gotten.
But it’s what remains of us
After it, those are all we remember'd
So stirring and inexorable,
’Twere it learned to think
Continguously—
Within reason, of course—
Every moment in time!

"continguously" is not a word. At least as far as Webster's will admit to. As one who invented a few words over the years, I would seek of you a definition for it?

She made an adverb out of an adjective.

No surprise. She long ago transformed the noun of me into a dangling participle.

You aren't just saying that because you know I envision us sitting in the west coast sand while looning at a full moon.

Right?
