I love words. I love to read. I love to write. I love to talk. Truth is I love the English language but I have to say ... I HATE grammar.
I was talking to a friend the other day and we were talking about my run-on sentences (is that run on or run-on I think it has a hyphen). So anyway we talking about my sentences that go on and on and I was telling her that it is just that when I write the blog I write what I am thinking and I pretty much think in one long run-on sentence so that is the way it comes out in my writing I mean come on anyone who has ever heard me talk knows that I only stop when I have to because I absolutely positively have to stop to **gasp** breath. Truth be told since I don't have to breath to keep thinking like I have to in order to keep talking my thought sentences are WAAAAAYY longer than my speaking sentences. That is why I reread the blog and break the REALLY long ones down into a couple (like 4) sentences before I hit publish post. Usually.
I just felt the need just one time to point out that I know how to use all the nifty little marks that you use to make it all correct. I know how to spell (or how to use spell check anyway) I know the difference between to too and two and their there and they're. I know alot isn't a word. I just don't care.
And now as I write this I am thinking of my brilliant gifted son who said to me the other day "Why should I have to do this stupid math homework. I have been doing this math since third grade and since I know how to do it why should I have to do all these problems? Since I know how to do it this is such a waste of time" I understand young son I truly do.
But since I am a grown up and noone is grading my blog I don't have to if I don't want to so ... Take that English teachers of the world. In your face!
