“Paris is always a good idea.”
(from the movie by the same name. which, by the way, I ain’t never seen.)
You know what they say here in the Appalachian Mountains: “I ain’t never.” Now, try as I might to convince folks that a double negative actually means a positive, I have at last given up and joined in. (If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.)
So, my own personal “I ain’t never” is this: “I ain’t never went nowhere.” Oh, I should mention the verb issue here too. People say “I seen” instead of “I saw.” “You was” instead of “you were.” I understand that this way of speaking is a hold-over from the Irish and British settlers here.
In any event, back to my world travelling. Why it ain’t?
Je ne sais pas. (I don’t know.)
Too busy, I guess. Not a priority, I imagine. Too cheap, probably.
Well, it’s time for a cool change.
