"Y-you work your self, too hard my L ... Lord." Walking into the office, Threrian carried a large tray with various over sized dishes on it. "I hope you don't m-mind, but i took liberty of the kitchens here. F-for starters I made you some duck spring rolls. Since you haven't eaten for two days i made you some lamb stew with steamed buns. and a raspberry trifle for desert. Please, don't argue as the head of our family. You have too keep up your strength which you can't do on an empty stomach."
“And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.”
Come home to me, Mother -
come make a home in my bones,
so that your wisdom passes to me
as I eat your flesh.
You gave birth to me and I
have watched you become a Crone,
‘fore long you shall have withered away
and I will eat your heart.
Soon it will be my turn, Mother,
my daughter will make an abode in me,
and then she shall eat me,
and I and you will be in her bones too.
The traditional rule in standard British English is that shall is used with first-person pronouns (I, we) to form the future tense, while will is used with second and third person forms (you, he, she, it, they):
I shall call you later tonight. 📞
Weshall be waiting; please don’t be late.
They will not be in stock if you wait too long.
But when it comes to expressing a strong determination to do something, it’s the other way around: willis used with the first person, and shallwith the second and third:
I will not eat green eggs and ham!
You shall eat it, Sam-I-Am! 🍽
In American English, “shall”is virtually interchangeable with “will,” except in asking questions (see below).
Therefore, all of the following sentences are correct:
She called to say that she will be late.
I shall play the role of Hamlet.
Melanie will bring doughnuts for the entire class. 🍩
Soon, they will heed Gandalf’s warning.
However, “shall” and ”will” are NOT interchangeable when it comes to questions.
We use “will” in the following types of questions:
Will the test be difficult?
Will you marry me? 💍
Will you be sad when we’re gone?
💁We use “shall” in questions that involve “I” and “we”:
Okay so I live in England. I was out walking around town one day and I saw this little cute restaurant at the end of the street named Boston Tea Party. I immediately began laughing and my friends stopped me. “What is it? What’s funny?” I pointed to the restaurant name. They stared at it and then back at me with a ‘what the hell?’ look on their face.
Me: “Boston tea party. You know, the boston tea party! You know what that is, right?”
I didn’t really expect them to know that much of American history but
WHY IS IT FUNNY??? WE THREW YOUR TEA IN THE HARBOR AND YOU NAME A TEA SHOP AFTER IT? DID THEY KNOW WHAT IT WAS WHEN THEY NAMED IT THAT OR DID THEY JUST THINK IT SOUNDED NICE?
So whenever I pass it in the street I turn to my friends and with a blank face say, “I’m gonna throw their tea in the river.”
And what everyone didn’t know was that I was serious. I planned to sneak in, or if I couldn’t, apply as an employee and get in that way. I was legit going to steal all the tea and dump it in the River Avon.
So to start my mission I did what anyone would do: Google.
Google… enlightened me. I learned it was not a tea shop and was actually an american style diner. They don’t even serve tea. “Oh,” I said. “…That makes more sense.”
I WAS PREPARED TO COMMIT A CRIME JUST BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT’D BE FUNNY. I could just imagine it. Getting deported and sent back to America. And when all my america friends asked me worriedly, “What? You got deported?! Why?!” I can explain the situation. And I just know I would be everyone’s hero. I know it. I would add it to my list of life achievements. Everyone would love me. My high school US teacher would put up a picture of me in his classroom. Everything would be perfect.
