May 6th – Garfield: Spring & Springer

Hi everyone,

Today’s comic is Garfield featuring the word “spring”.

Comic Breakdown

Garfield’s thoughts on getting up in the morning.

“Time to spring into action!” – This means time to get up and get going!

“Huuuuut!”  –  This means “ready and go!”

“The spirit is willing but the springer is weak.” –  This means one may want to do something but actually acting on what you want to do is harder.  Your mind is strong but your body is weak when you must act on your thoughts. 

Spring & Springer

The word “springer” is a noun.  Springer is a noun that refers to someone who springs.  The word spring has several meanings. 

Spring can mean the season.

Spring also means to bounce or jump.

A spring is an instrument (usually made out of metal) that bounces.

A springer is someone who figuratively (and sometimes literally) bounces.  To spring into action means to get up and move in a very energetic way.
