Back

Who is back here?

Well, my coming back to ABC-W after an incomplete round is no big deal. ABC-W round 18 is back and another chance is here to make it through the end. The second letter for ABC-W week two is B and I am playing with word BACK!

Old English bæc, of Germanic origin; related to Middle Dutch and Old Norse bak. The adverb use dates from late Middle English and is a shortening of aback.

It can be

The rear surface of the human body from the shoulders to the hips often a hot topic during the red carpet functions.

Or

Direction opposite from the one, that one is facing or travelling.

Or else,

It could be returning to an earlier or normal position or condition. Back to roots or else back to square one. “I am back to ABC-W after a half way run in the previous edition.

Also,

It may denote something from the past. Often we hear the elderly say “back when I was a child or young adult…”

Not to forget

It also refers to returning something. Whatever you have borrowed belongs to its owner. RIGHT!

Or

Supplement to strengthen (Monetarily, emotionally, or morally). Whenever the life gets off track an assurance of being there by a close one works wonders. Hope keeps the life moving.

Moving ahead, I would like to end here for the day with a promise to myself to be BACK next Wednesday.

Good Day to all!

  3. Glad to see you back! Isn't it fascinating how the English language works! I pity people who need to learn it as a second language as it can be so confusing!

    1. Thank you Leslie!
      So True! It is indeed tough for the non natives to understand the nitty-gritty of the language
      however as they say life is all about learning...
