Epic of Gilgamesh Day

"Beloved friend, swift stallion, wild deer, 
leopard ranging in the wilderness... together we crossed the mountains..."
— From the Epic of Gilgamesh, oldest written Sumerian language narrative (Trans. Mitchell, 2004)
"Hey bf, wat's up? I m 2 bsy 2 c u 2nite. Text me latr, Dude!"
-- 21st Century text, made possible by the age of unparalleled technological advances!
Maybe we should institute an "Epic of Gilgamesh Day," where we all speak poetically to one another... More about the Epic of Gilgamesh
