DANIEL DINNIE - AUTHOR OF THROUGH THE CRIMSON MIRROR - BOOK 1

‘US English’. Therefore, it picks on words like ‘favourite’ because it has a ‘u’ in it. I don’t know why but I’m definitely fan of the US, [if there are any American princesses out there, who wish to whisk me away, this is your chance ;)] certainly over the UK (no offence people in the UK)…
This experience must have planted the seed, because as I was driving the other day, I couldn’t help but think what the purpose of the letter ‘u’ is… So then, I wrote about it (evidently), and this is what I scribbled. It’s a real rambling piece of writing about absolutely nothing important ;)
What’s up with the letter ‘u’? It seems to be an almost pointless letter… I mean favourite or favorite? It does not really matter. The inclusion of the ‘u’ did not change the meaning or even enhance it. So really, it’s only there to please the British (say that part with an English accent). Colour or color? Honour or honor? Endeavoured or endeavored? Neighbour or neighbor? Rumour or rumor? It’s the same story with all of these.
Maybe I’m just lazy. Maybe the Americans are lazy. Lazy or not the good ol US of A is still the largest economy in the world. Yes, yes, it’s tough times for them currently and China is nipping at their heels, but for now, they cling onto their number one spot.
It seems the English language all started, well in England (go figure). However, America, the bullies that they are (i.e. the biggest economy in the world) decided they wanted it their way and made the necessary changes. It’s kind of like them starting wars when they don’t get their own way (WMD’s, ya right, my left foot). Let’s just hope China doesn’t get too much bigger else, who knows what our alphabet will look like… :)
I was born in Durban, South Africa in April 1983. I didn
’t have a very happy childhood. When I look around, I see so many more children going through similar things. They just manifest what they are going through in different ways, the most common manifestations being drugs and alcohol. That’s why I write about my childhood now and promote my book.
