My Dictionary

This is my English dictionary which I’ve been using for the past 60 years. My brother gave it to me when I passed the hi-school enrollment. —– Since then this one served for me to know the meaning of the word, and check spelling etc.

(I’m changing the cover after 18 years of use.)

(It seemed people surprised to find that me not having Oxford = What’s wrong ?) —– They surprised me not to take drug, no alchol, no TV, no smartphone, no smoke, no woman, even not gay, yet still eat meat = and disassemble expensive camera = what’s wrong. (it’s not your business ) =

If I follow the way of the other people, I didn’t need to come to the Zen !

Inside, a small note was left that I got it 1960 when I was 15 years old. (15 years old boy started to use it 60 years ago and after 60 years still using it exactry the same way. = this was the reason why people don’t argue with Zennist.) 😀

I don’t think I’m proud to use one dictionary for all through life. In fact, there was a time that I was using SONY electronic dictionary which was very useful and convenient though, as it was based on the mini-disc memory system, mechanical instability hindered its use. = when it works it was brilliant but the trouble was, it didn’t work when I needed the most. —– and on the end of its life, it left the last epitaph “Please insert the disc correctly”. = Maybe I should have tried to get another Electronic Dictionary but it didn’t happen (no Akihabara in London, and I was not using Amazon then. = So, that was what it should have been and has bee as it was. —– In compalison, people struggling to get new one unnecessarily)

(I guess, maybe other people are using app dictionary kind on smartphone but that was what I hate most = I hate Google spy on my mail, eBay trace my type, taste etc etc Why they don’t leave me alone ? —– For them, I’m only a subject to squeeze out a profit and for me, they are only a necessary evil)

And awhile ago, I got a Thesaurus from Lidl for a whopping £1.5, my writing got a great sophistication and the eloquence. ( Ha ha ha 😀 )
