See You Overmorrow
Well, more like the day after tomorrow is called “overmorrow.” It’s a Middle English word that was in use until the late 15th century. Perhaps they should rename that Dennis Quaid movie The Day After Tomorrow to Overmorrow. Way fewer words and it packs a punch. Folks would’ve flocked to theaters just to get an understanding of the movie title!
Now, overmorrow had its heyday following the Norman conquest. Webster’s dictionary still has a viable definition for the word despite its archaic and out-of-date roots. Germans still have a word for it – übermorgen, or “in two days.” It’s unsurprising considering that the German language has ancient origins. Let us recommence our usage of overmorrow … on the overmorrow!
