In fact, in November 2011 an international petition was formally launched to ask UNESCO —in the light of the increasing marginalization of the classical languages—to declare Latin and Greek a specially protected “intangible heritage of humanity.” I am not sure what I think about treating classical languages as if they were an endangered species or a precious ruin, but I am fairly confident that it wasn’t great politics, right now, to suggest (as the petition does) that their preservation should be made the particular responsibility of the Italian government. I think Mario Monti has rather too much on his plate already.
Without realizing, I entered girls’ toilet. The stomach upset and prolonged urges control had drawn away my conscious. The two glasses of tea I had taken in the morning made my condition worse. All I thought about was privacy. I thought I had some unusual giggle sounds but the situation could not allow me to look back. As I was coming out of the cubicle, it was the time I regained my conscious and discovered that I had entered toilets for girls. To make the matter worse, a group of girls had gathered outside the toilet and only turned away in loud laughter when I came out. Horror of horrors, I forgot to zip up! I cannot imagine if there is any creature could match my look at that given moment!
