I like the word “Wheel” for several reasons. Reason one: it’s invention was one of the more important ever, enabling so many things not possible to exist. Reason two: secret H that could easily mess up someone learning our recklessly hard language.

“YOU KNOW THAT BIG WHEEL KEEP ON TURNIN’,” exclaims Tina Turner in “Proud Mary.” The eponymous title of the post is an album by The Prestige All-Stars, an group including popular jazz musicians, most notably John Coltrane.
