A Thought for Thursday

This second of May, which may be today (we’re not sure as it is the first Thursday in May) we’d like, if we may, to talk about ‘may’.

In English we use the modal verb ‘may‘, to hypothesis, talk about a possibility or make polite requests.

In the first two instances it can be used interchangeably with ‘might‘ but should not be confused with the word ‘maybe‘, which is is an adverb meaning perhaps.

Now this may be a little confusing but maybe if you re-read it, it will become clearer.

(P and S and by the way,
If indeed it is the Second today,
Then it is the Gardener’s Birthday – hooray!)
