aut disce aut discede

I had a serious case of “Latin tongue tied-itis” in lab today when in replace of “foramen magum” I blerted out:

“BIG HOLE!” 

So, to remedy this malady…I went home put on my toga and conjugated some verbs.

*figuratively that is* 

latin

either learn or leave

In other linguistic news in Geriatircs today we learned all about presbyopia (diminished ability of eyes to focus) & presbycusis (hearing loss)… so what does the prefix “presby-” mean you might ask (and I did) —> “old age”

Ahhh, love it when things make sense.
