No, I’m not confused! I fully intended to post this for Awww Monday, but life got in the way….again. So, I’m combining Awww Monday with Happy Tuesday.
The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
The earliest known use of the phrase dates back to 1888 in a book titled, Illustrative Shorthand, by Linda Bronson. The phrase is a pangram—using every letter of the alphabet in a sentence. You may remember this exercise from typing class (if you’re old like me). You may also see it when looking at examples of fonts/typefaces.
Although the quick fox usually stays outside, I did find a lazy dog. But, it probably wouldn’t take too much effort to jump over this one…especially if it should be before 7:30am. 🙂
