Hello.

It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!

On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
Leo Yankevich
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.

We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.

    There was a flu epidemic at the school so the teacher instructed the children to swallow the tar drink he had made.

    I was one of the children of the school that suffered under the epidemic too, but the tar drink our teacher prepared had been drunken by himself.

    There is an epidemic of tarred teachers.

    The school children refused to drink the tar drink I made for them to prevent the flu epidemic, so I had to share it with the other teachers.

    The teacher with the beard, he poured the glass of tar into a flower pot and the poor flower was infected with a seldom epidemic.

    Today our teacher briefly discussed different forms of the tar before delivering a new lecture on epidemic diseases.

    There was an epidemic of teachers being tarred and feathered by their dissatisfied students.

    The teacher assumed an epidemic of flu had broken out in the school, but the students were just coughing because of the tar in their cigarettes.

    Hopefully I don't make it too confusing for you @bubbli
    It's: different forms of the tar (no article here).

    @Frank me and my articles. I am going to write an article on it. :)
    Thank you!
  • FrankFrank Moderator Posts: 6,002 mod
    I'd make it a song @bubbli
    Me and my articles is a good song title.
    (Like me and my shadow).

    @Frank did you write an article on body language? If yes I would love to read it.

    @Bubbli 's teacher told her to use an article with (an) epidemic and not with (a) tar.

    - Hot streets - by Igor

    Streets are my teachers, and I walk with my sneakers,
    the tar is hot under my feet, and I hear a scream over the street.
    I believe there is an epidemic, think to escape comes automatic.

    LOL

    Following his teachers advise, the knight threw hot tar over the castle wall onto the screaming lepers to prevent an epidemic.

    All the teachers in school smell like tar. I think it is a sort of epidemic.
    Does it make any sense?

    I shook hands with my teacher, but the tar of his glove spread over my hand as if it were an epidemic.

  • FrankFrank Moderator Posts: 6,002 mod
    My son's teacher was all covered in tar as if he suffered from some kind of epidemic.

    I apologize.
    It is my fault because I didn't read the rule.

    Those teachers who physically punish their students have tarred this profession and should be ruled out like an epidemic.

    Today our teacher taught us about the epidemic disease caused by tar contamination.

    Some students consider me to be their teacher and stick to me like tar or honey; it's like an epidemic!
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,061 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Some teachers consider their students involved in an epidemic habit of making a tar like image of them. :)
