Post Script: You Bring the Milk

{via Martha}

similar to politics and religion, i suppose discussing grammar is taboo.
but let's clear the air.

a)  everything I wrote yesterday was written incorrectly.
all of it.
i saw the clever grammatical poster, and thought you might enjoy it as much as i.

b)  i am not claiming perfection.
i am guilty of said offenses, and you're free to call me on it.
does referring to a "right" -- instead of "rite" -- of passage sound familiar?
that was me.  i was hoping you wouldn't notice.

c) how 'bout a truce?
i won't critique your grammar or spelling.
i won't even make a face.
but i may clench my mental red pen tightly.

so quit double, triple and quadruple checking yourself.
just bring some milk.  i'll bring the cereal.  and we'll talk it over.
and maybe next time I'll post about the clever cat poster instead (which is hilarious, by the way).

No, no, no, it needs to be said. I think I actually learned a thing or two (I'm one of those who always wants to write 'definately'). Plus that website is HILARIOUS. I rarely laugh out loud when I'm by myself, but the facebook one had me rolling.
