Daily Lesson 7

More of the subject of "Okay"
In modern parlance, "okay" is often used to indicate approval or
indorsement ("Is that okay?" "Yes, that's okay.").  Try using these
phrases instead:
     "Is that acceptable?"
     "Doth this meet with thine approval?"
     "Aye, 'tis well indeed."
     "I most heartily approve."

Shakespearian Word/Phrase of the Day:
Upon the gad - on the spur of the moment
     "Upon the gad, I entered into the tourney."

Nunc est bibendum.
Politicians prefer unarmed peasants.
