I thought I ought
In this morning’s post I mentioned the yellowish lichen that I noticed on September 29th was common on rocks along the Apache Trail northeast of Phoenix, so I thought I ought to give you a closer look at some.
I also thought I owed you an explanation of the rhyming title. Did you know that ought comes from the old past tense of the verb owe? To say you ought to do something is to say you owe it to yourself or others to do it.
