It’s almost 11 pm and I was about to enter my room. Just then I thought of looking up in the sky. Wanted to check if the moon was still there. This curiosity was due to lunar eclipse held on 1st January. The moon was not there (Did Rahu swallowed it for real?). I tried searching the sky from back and sides of my house. It was nowhere. Darkness was trying to conquer the whole world. The fluctuating street lamp was fighting like a brave injured soldier.
Within seconds, I started traveling back in time. Why for sudden I was back in time? Curiosity increased as my flashbacks rendered an incident when I was five years old. I am in my bed aside my parents and sister. It’s dark and my father just switched off radio. Few minutes later, cats started fighting on the roof making strange sounds. Their meow was now meOOOOOOOOwwww. Fear was dominating emotion. My parents convinced me that cats won’t hurt me. I closed my eyes and never knew when I was covered by blanket of sleep. At that age, Night meant fear for me.

While reading some documents I came across this word. As you already know how good I am at English, This is a new word added to my dictionary. The attraction towards the first three letters of this word made me to write this post. My earlier Entrecard image showcased that. Then I changed it as I don’t wanted to be a democrat. Neither the elephant to clarify myself.
I don’t want to write much about the first three letters. Reason is as stated above. Take the next three letters ‘ess’. They are pronounced similar to first three. Am I right? I need to learn more about pronunciations. It’s funny that ‘ass’ and ‘ess’ sound similar. First has meanings and lots of uses but the second one is meaningless.
Unexpectedly I am somehow improving my English. Whenever I find such word, the first thing I do is Google the word. That gives me it’s meaning and examples on how to use in sentences. Learning doesn’t seem to stop. The reading I do is so much that I add a word everyday to my word database.
I remember the lessons I used to get in my high school. The breaking of word into smaller words and trying to interpret their meanings by our teacher. Now imagine this word at that time. I can hear an interpretation coming from my high school time to now. My teacher is explaining…
“If we take ‘ass’ out from this….”
