Semantics

On this, my first of five mornings of self-quarantine, arriving hard upon the last of five languid days of lamented hospitalization, I note, in passing, the astounding semantic difference between the two, apparently, self-same phrases:

1. “Nobody expects you to do anything…”

2. “Everybody expects you to do nothing…”

Trust me, dear friends, these are far from synonymous!
