What is one to say about June? The time of perfect young summer, the fulfilment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.

Is worth a load of hay;
A swarm of bees in June
Is worth a silver spoon;
A swarm of bees in July
Is not worth a fly.

Confusing abbreviations

I just had to work out what DM meant in this sentence:-

For those that don't know, Clyde is the Discord bot. He's been telling you things from time to time now, i.e. if you try to DM someone that's blocked you, if you use the /nick command to change your nickname.

Now I can add a new meaning of DM to my current list:-

Doc Martens
Deutsch Mark
drogerie markt

And now:-
direct message

I will add it to the list:-

    Context is key with a lot of abbreviations, but it is incredibly difficult to work out what they could be in a second language. And the age of technology has made things even more difficult, as everything seems to be abbreviated while "DMing"!
