Mo Hawg - Week 40

Day 1.

   Mo’s Wisdom: May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong…enough sorrow to keep you human and enough hope to make you happy.

   Mo’s Things to Think About: If teachers taught, why don’t preachers praught?  If a vegetarian eats vegetables…what does a humanitarian eat?  In what language do people recite at a play…and play at a recital?  You ship by a truck and send cargo by ship.  Why?

   Mo’s New Word for Today: Intaxication: Eurphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize it was your money to start with!

   More Mo’s Wisdom: Always read stuff that will make  you look good if  you die in the middle of it.  Drive carefully, it’s not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.

Day 2.

   Mo’s Wisdom: Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a tear.

   Mo’s Things to Think About: How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same – while a wise man and wise guy are opposites? 

   Mo’s New Word for Today: Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high.

   Mo’s Very Interesting Word for Today: Did you know that our word “Admiral” – usually meaning the chief commander of a navy came from the Arabic word amir al-bahr, which means “Lord of the Sea?”

   It’s true – and you learned something from Mo!

   More Mo’s Wisdom:  Never buy a car you can’t push.  Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you don’t have a leg to stand on.

Day 3.

   Mo’s Wisdom: The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

   Mo’s New Word for Today: Sarchasm: The gulf between the author or sarcastic wit and the person who doesn’t get it!

   More Mo’s Wisdom: If ignorance is bliss, why aren’t more people happy?

   Mo’s Very Interesting Word for Today: Did you know that the word “academy”  - meaning a place of learning or a group of learned men (people), like the French Academy actually comes from Akademos (or Academos), which was the name of the owner of the area that Plato rented as a place for his school?

   It’s true…and you learned a tidbit from Mo!

Day 4.

   Mo’s Wisdom:  Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and once chance to do all the things you want to do.

   Mo’s New Word for Today: Inoculatte: To take coffee intravenously when you are running late.

   More Mo’s Wisdom: You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.

   Mo’s Very Interesting Word for Today: Arctic is the word we use when we mean extremely cold or north.  The Greek word for bear was…arctic!  Is this because the constellation The Great Bear pointed north?  Were the Greeks aware of the great bears of the north?

   Mo has another little interesting thing to tuck in here.  Did you know that our modern phrase “get your bearings,” meaning to find out where you are, comes from the fact that the constellation The Great Bear points to the North Star?  It’s true!

  Gotcha!  You learned something from Mo!

Day 5.

   Mo’s Wisdom: Don’t go for looks; they can deceive.  Don’t go for wealth; even that faces away.  Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright.  Find the one that makes your heart smile.

   Mo’s New Word for Today: Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.

   More Mo’s Wisdom: Happiness comes through doors you didn’t even know you left open.

   One of our Colquitt County First Grade teachers gave each of her students the first half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come u p with the remainder of the proverb.  It’s  amazing that these were done by first graders as their insight will surprise you!

   Better to be safe than….punch a 5th grader!
