Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Friday, March 17


Spanish singer Julio Iglesias was on television with British TV host Anne Diamond when he used the word "maƱana". Diamond asked about the word, and Iglesias explained that the term means "maybe the job will be done to-morrow, maybe the next day, maybe the day after that. Perhaps next week, next month, next year. Who cares?"

The host turned to Irishman Shay Brennan who was also on the show, and asked him if there was an equivalent term in Irish. "No," answered Brennan. "In Ireland, we don't have a word to describe that degree of urgency."
