· Unto This Last ·

No, today's title today isn't a fashionable allusion to John Ruskin, though you might think so. It's my reference, rather — a day in advance of its glad approach — to the end of my quarter.

"What do you mean?" Well, at term's end, I count down the days remaining in my classes always like this from fancy to plain:

  • Antepenultimate Day: Not the last day of class, but the third day from it.

  • Penultimate Day: The second day, naturally, from the last day of class.

  • Ultimate Day: The very last day of class.

  • Final Day: The day that any class takes its final.

  • Last Day: The day my own grades must go in.

I'm glad today to say I'm nearing "This Last."

Of course, if you missed Unto This Last, luckily I do happen to have a makeup quiz.

"Country Club Classic" is my style, apparently. It must be my Greek and Latin "diction."
