I regret to inform you that there will be no vocabulary test tomorrow. This is indeed doleful news. But as you are all able to cope with the vicissitudes of life, we shall indubitably make it through this Friday, made indigent in its loss of an opportunity to improve our verbal skills. Alas alack!
No, do not importune me to reinstate the quiz, nor denigrate me for my bonhomie in the face of this tragedy. My mind is made up! We'll move the quiz to Monday! :)
