Spring has pretty much sprung, around here at the Such Is Life household.
Sprung. Now there’s an interesting word. Makes you think of either a wound-up watch, or a jungle panther. Or a springy sponge. Or a breakfast cereal – why hasn’t some advertising Brainiac ever thought to link up “Sprung” with a peppy fibre treat??
Spring certainly pales in comparison to sprung, even from the practical application of the word. Spring sort-of lies there, like an expended Slinky, while sprung practically simmers with latent potential. Or at least more than spreng might. I don’t think spreng would ever catch on as a replacement option for sprung.
Nor would sprong, which frankly sounds an awful lot like those things on the wheel of a bicycle, or the stabby parts of a fork.
I feel like I’ve gotten off topic – so far off topic that I don’t even remember what the freakin’ topic may have been…
Oh well, that’s spring for you…Chow for now!
