I feel like, as if I were researching anything else, I need to understand the context of the piece, culturally. So I put ‘December 2006’ into Google (a tried and tested method for cultural research of course), which in turn produced this gorgeous little sentence, courtesy of wikipedia:
December 2006 was the twelfth month of that year. It began on a Friday and, 31 days later, ended on a Sunday.
What a delicious sentence all round. Let’s read it again, or perhaps even say it out loud if you dare….
December 2006 was the twelfth month of that year.
It began on a Friday,
And 31 days later,
Ended on a Sunday.
hmm m like an internet poem too good not to share.
