If you teach English, then you should know that the word "literally" is tautologous in the context in which you used it, since it means "actually" or "precisely as written", and there exist no variations of the word "today" which could cast doubt on the fact that its meaning is "this" day. "Literally" is only used as an adjective when the subject can have alternative meanings and one wishes to indicate that the literal meaning is the correct one. For example:
Her curtains made me sick.Her curtains literally made me sick.
The first describes a mood or feeling, the second says that the speaker actually vomited.
Incase you were unaware it`s a book...that`s the point I was making...
what do you think you do when googling?
Googled it?! Don`t people read anymore?
i LOVE British humor....however, that was not funny.
Ahh so you guys DO get irony!
anyway, im just happy everyone can see the glory of lady bracknell and her handbag :)
watched it thrice!
She is horrified to learn that he was adopted as a baby after being discovered in a handbag at a railway station.
I didn`t expect that from a 0:04 long video.
I did, but the doctors just said "How the hell are you 129 years old?".
makes it great.
