Mildy interesting albeit infuriating
English is one of the oldest (relatively) and trickiest (to non-native speakers) languages there is. It's as if it took the language construction rulebook and tore it up then boiled it as a stew.
For example, we have a word that means this:
Nice. Real nice.
But we don't have a word for the day after tomorrow. Other languages have it. Chinese has "hou tian," German has slang for it -- Übermorgen --, but English has words resembling it, such as "eve" and "the morrow".
