It's a good thing that July is almost over.
You know, I'll bet I could easily post everyday, but since I've self imposed this daily deadline for a month, I find myself sitting, staring at the screen, wondering who would care if I missed a day.
It would bug me until the end of time -- that's the truth.
I'm running a little late tonight, so if you don't mind, I'd just like to take this chance to get something off my chest:
ARE NOT THE SAME THING!!!!!
THEY ARE NOT INTERCHANGEABLE!!!!!!!!!
IF YOU WRITE "YOUR" WHEN YOU REALLY MEAN "YOU'RE," YOUR SENTENCE MAKES NO SENSE!!!!
THEY'RE CALLED HOMOPHONES -- THAT MEANS THEY SOUND ALIKE, BUT MEAN DIFFERENT THINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!
(sound of ragged, labored breathing)
I'm not sure exactly how it happened, but high school english really took hold in my brain, and I just can't abide this -- I'm also the guy who sends grammatically correct, and properly punctuated text messages.
I feel much better now, thank you.
(Just don't get me started on their, there and they're, or too, to and two, or......)
