  When you sit, you don't move -or much less...

...and when you're motionless, your body's obviously less fit :


... and now, check what you can recollect

& try this QUIZ :

Sitting or moving ?
1) Nowadays we spend most of our days...
standing on our feet
sitting less than sleeping
sitting on our feet
sitting more than sleeping

After all, it's only a matter of logic

Tomorrow's April Fool's Day

The First of April, some do say

Is set apart for All Fools Day

But why the people call it so

Not I, nor they themselves do know

Here is a mini lesson on April Fool's Day and some vocabulary :

April Fool jokes generally involve persuading people to do something stupid like looking for hen's teeth or for a left-handed screwdriver  -or other things that don't exist. However, you can only play April Fools only before noon –if the jokes don't stop by midday the hoaxer is told :

'April Fool's Day is past and gone,
Your 're the fool and I am none.

Some of you have just passed the driving license test... Now that the strain of the exam is far behind you, watch this funny animation by and relax :

By the way... I do hope you'll be driving better than this ;o)

strain = stress
by the way (à propos / au fait)
