i gotta scoot out the door, but i had the funnest thought.
and yes, i said funnest.
had to share.
i got a note yesterday from someone trying to be helpful.
they were pointing out a grammar blunder.
trust me, i get a lot of these notes.
and i DO try to go correct them.
but this one's on a print, and well, i'll get to it when
i re-order. it really doesn't bother me.
i will change it. cause it's correct the way he told me.
and i'm fine with that.
just not in a panic over it.
and i'm grinnin'. and there IS a point to this.
i used to get in a panic over it.
ohmygosh, look what i did! i'm so stupid!
these don't bother me anymore.
i've made too many!!!
i admit it...i have no idea when to use lay/lie
i have to look it up every time.
i can tell then/than apart (altho that's the mistake he pointed out!)
so i still mess up.
and it's total habit to put the apostrophe in 'it's' every time i
type that darn word.
and yes, i've been told what's the correct way to use its and it's.
then there's the complete misspellings!! some are just typo kinda things,
some are just um.....i'm a horrible speller!!!
there's grammar in general...but that's been out the door for so long,
people have given up on that.
what's cool about this is.....IT DOESN'T BOTHER ME ANYMORE!!!
and it used to.
people have different approaches to how they tell me. and most people
are super gentle and try real hard to present it nicely.
i'm thinking this guy probably tried to be nice....
but his saying he didn't buy this piece because it would 'offend' the person
he wanted to give it to who was an english teacher made me laugh.
this morning i was thinking of the note.
i was thinking of offending the english teacher.
i was thinking of the ONLY teacher who never like me was in fact,
AN ENGLISH TEACHER! and i do think i sorta offended her in some way.
so i thought the whole thing was funny.
and the fact that messin' up with then/than could offend someone.
i laughed and thought 'trust me, there's a lot more about me that
would offend her then that.'
and i smiled and enjoyed the whole thought and realized something...
this seriously doesn't bother me anymore!!!
i don't feel stupid. i don't feel inadequate. it's not a big deal.
yeah, yeah, i'll fix it.
but that's it. i'll fix it. that's it.
and that! that! is big news!!!
and the offense thing?
what's up with that???
i'm startin' to see what's my deal and what's not.
and i thought it was pretty darn nifty!
or um......just one of the funnest things to share today!!
