Nicanor

I was supposed to write about my recent trip but 'Nicanor' disturbed me. I don't know any 'Nicanor' yet it hummed in the back of my mind, like a 'last song syndrome'.

It's rhythmic.

It's: Nicanor, Nicanor, Nicanor, Nor, Nor.

I searched 'Nicanor' in Wikipedia and found one interesting Nicanor.

Nicanor Stigmatias of early 2nd century, grammarian, in the Roman Empire Hadrian.

Apparently, he got the nickname 'stigmatias' due to his focus in the field of punctuation. It's weird since I was looking at my previous posts and saw lots of incorrect grammar usage. I grew tired of studying my writing and decided to leave the posts as they are.

But then the Nicanor tune drilled my ears.

Nicanor
Nicanor
Nicanor
Nor
Nor
