    lol Koa, it indeed IS "grammar"

    lol lol, still awake and with you there, and I got to the same conclusion myself, but without the Italian thingy, I know maybe ten or less Italian words

    Does anyone know where the ducks go when the lake is frozen?

    the ducks fly south for the winter [I think. Maybe they just disappear into some weird parallel universe?], and the fish stay in the pond, but it's only frozen at the surface, of course. Maybe butterflies just search for shelter somewhere? i dont' think Judas is in hell either, but maybe I shouldn't say that. (?)

    I have a friend with a pond. They feed thier ducks year round so they never fly away. Sometimes they are flying around and try to land on the ice and just splatter and skid across the lake. hehe. They dont really get hurt, it just looks funny.

    But seriously, Ducks, along with most songbirds, fly south. They ususally end up in Mexico or souther US, depending on how cold it is that winter.
    ...Also baby duck hat would be good for parties.

    that sort of takes the wonder out of it, doesn't it?

    that's ok. I like his idea of pretending to be mute. Sometimes I like to pretend I can't speak English.

    It's pretty funny.. until they start getting desperate and giving me weird looks, then I go and TALK and they realise I can understand them. which sucks, because then I'm drawn into a -oh-no- conversation.

    That's fun... I know some guys that stopped people asking for directions pretending to be tourists, and after the person struggled to explain for a while, they just said 'Ok guys, that way', in our dialect...

    Sometimes I wonder how I'd feel if I couldn't read, and all these signs were nonsense to me...

    Read one flew over the cukoo's nest...

    it has a guy in there who pretends to be mute... and the author has some really good ideas as to why we should pretend to be mute... (or something like that)

    Seriously does anyone have any info on what Salinger has been doing since he dropped out of sight? Does he give interviews?

    fayefaye- have you read it?

    (you are right of course)...

    I have yet to find someone who has also read that book... I absolutely LOVE it...

    I've read it twice so far... bought the book from the library... :-D (they were going to discard it after the next book sale)
