A fatal death…

Living in South Africa with all the different languages English is not the first language of a lot of people. English is also not my first language.

When I was in Grade 9 we had to write an essay about a car accident. I wrote the essay and was very proud of myself. One of the sentences in my essay was “she died a fatal death”

When I got the essay back the teacher told me that it is impossible to die twice. To this day I smile when I think about this.
