2015 Summer Wonders #18 Need Some Beach, STAT!

Brrrr. Another chilly morning in Westsylvania.  We need some summer in here.  Stat.  What the hell does “stat” mean, anyway?  I know it means “fast” but where does the term come from, beside cheesy medical dramas?  Anyone?  Okay, then I’ll tell you because I wondered, for years, but didn’t wonder enough to ask someone or look it up.
“Stat” is from the Latin word statim, which means “instantly” or “immediately.” So there you go.  This is an educational post.

About JunkChuck

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.
