Latin IS English!

Latin “Ad Infinitum” . . . Even on Spring Break!

It’s “Spring Break” from Latin (at least for many), yet it can still cross our paths unexpectedly.  For example, I just heard (on an older TV program re-run) that owning people money, who owe other people money, who owe other people money is similar to the following “proverb”—

 

“Big fleas have little fleas

Upon their backs to bite ’em.

And little fleas have smaller fleas,

And so . . . ad infinitum!
