Shakespearean Imagination

Good morrow, friends!

It's Wednesday again, which means another installment of Shakespearean Imagination!

I worked 19 hours yesterday, and today went arse over teakettle at 9am this morning, so what should have been a nice, short 7.5 hour day wound up being 11 hours with an additional 3 hour family commitment at the end of it. I can’t get into the details, but suffice it to say that my schedule for the rest of the week is shaping up to be equally:

unreal : un•re•al /ˌənˈrē(ə)l / (adjective) :

- so strange as to appear imaginary; not seeming real.

Synonyms: imaginary - fanciful - fictitious - insubstantial

First seen in Shakespeare's Macbeth (written 1605 - 1606). The full text of the play may be found here.
