Have you ever noticed the word "stax" from the label of Lay's potato chips? I looked up in the dictionary and this word was not in the dict. So I looked for a similar word that has the same sound which was "stacks" and I found its meaning. Stack means a pile of things arranged one on top of another. Lay's potato chips has launched a new package that is very similar to Prinkle potato chips. So I understand that "stax" is another word of "stacks".

Many shampoos are anti-dandruff. Actually I have already known this word before, but I like to forget it. Dandruff is small white bits of dead skin from the head which gather in the hair or fall on the clothes.

My horoscope said "You and your sweetie need to be fleet of foot and ready of heart." I don't know this phrase before and I don't have a clue what it means. And I found that "to be fleet of foot" is able to run quickly.
Reflection of the week
I felt like I was not as alert as the first week. I did not know what happened to me, maybe because I was very tired from teaching. I learned a lot from teaching grammar to my students; however, I didn't want to record the new vocabulary I learned from the preparation for teaching. I wanted to record the interesting vocabulary I accidentally found. That was why I wrote about them very few in each week.
