Afrikaans Post – Kwart voor vier

Another post I did for Finesse Voelgoed’s blog section. My ouers het ‘n teorie ontwikkel soos ek en my suster groot geword het. Die kort en lank van die teorie is dat net soos ‘n jaar in kwarte gedeel word; vier kwartale in die skooljaar, vier seisoene in ‘n jaar ens, so word ‘n kind…
