Wherefore Art Thou..

In doing writing work, I love to look up definitions. Remember the Captain on the Axiom in the movie Wall-E? Haha..that's me.

When looking for the correct words to use in a specific line, I usually check on definitions and synonyms. Today I was looking for a certain phrase to use and thought of "Wherefore art thou", as in Juliet's famous phrase in Romeo and Juliet.

So did you know, "Wherefore art thou" actually means "Why are you". I always thought it meant 'Where are you'. So Juliet was actually saying "Why are you Romeo" and not "Where are you Romeo". You knew? Oh, I didn't.. Well, that's my English lesson for today :) :)

I bid good night til it be morrow..
