Word of the Day: THROWED

Word of the day is throwed by Nailah Harvey

Today's word of the day comes from one of 2016's best movies, Fences. Denzel Washington said "throwed" at least three times. Although I understand the time period and setting of the film, it made me think of my former second graders who used to mix up their present and past tense verbs.

Gotta love the English language and its culture!

Word of the Day: SUBSTRACT

Word of the Day by N.HARV

Today's word of the day is possibly a scientific way of saying subtract. LOL. 

Let's use it in a sentence:

If you substract the amount of days from February 19th till today, you will know the countdown of days before I celebrate one of my bookiversaries.

I published my very first book, SoKoDiaries: An American Teacher Living in South Korea, in February 2013. If you're interested in reading about this Black chick who miraculously survived months of living in Asia, then click here

Anyway. Let's do better, good people. Substract is not a word.
