Mirabile dictu

If someone had told me when I was a child that I would be even more opposed to school as an adult, I would have said "No, that isn't possible."


  1. Overachiever's footnote: "Mirabile dictu" is a Latin phrase meaning "Wonderful to relate".

    As my husband helpfully points out, "It's the supine form!" Thanks, hon. Where's that prostrate form when I need it?

  2. PsychMom says, over her morning tea,

    Is there a phrase for "Sad to Relate"? That's probably in the prostrate form.

    But I loved school when I was a kid...I would have never believed that the day would come that I would have such distaste and distrust of the educational system.
