Lost in Translation

I bought a toothpaste-squeezer today. OC-me, I like having the toothpaste squeezed from the bottom up, using every drop there is in the tube.

The item was imported from China, the package said, and curiously I went to check out the company website. Below's what's written in the About Us page.

Enjoy.

Why AnneThology?

Anthology means a collection of poems, short stories, plays, songs, or excerpts. My name is Anne, and this blog contains a collection of my thoughts, musings and writings (poems, short stories), some songs I like, plus a sprinkling of excerpts I find worth sharing --hence, AnneThology.

Did you know?

Anthology derives from the Greek word ἀνθολογία (anthologia; literally “flower-gathering”) for garland — or bouquet of flowers — which was the title of the earliest surviving anthology, assembled by Meleager of Gadara.

Look, what I have -- these are all for you.
