A Mencken Wha?!
So... for any true Gilmore girls fan, you will remember this book being mentioned several times by Rory and Richard. If you're like me, you'll remember is mostly because it's a funny ass word. I will admit, I thought it had something to do with math. And we all know how much I looooove math. But here's a little something that I recently learned that I'll now pass on to all of you... A "chrestomathy" is a collection of choice literary passages, used especially as an aid in learning a foreign language. That doesn't sound like math to me! Phew! But if this is all an elaborate plan to get me to read about the dreaded arithmetic... H.L. and I are going to have problems. So put down your abacus and your slide rule (because I know you like to go old school) and pick up A Mencken Chrestomathy by H.L. Mencken.
