Really, I am. From grades one through eight, I was in horror during spelling quizzes. That whole “i before e except after c” thing just goes right over my head. I always spell according with two r’s and one c.
I can remember when to use their, when to use there, and when to use they’re. I know how to use whom. I know what ambiguous means, what florid means, what antidisestablishmentarianism means. But don’t ask me to spell them.
If I had to handwrite essays in English class, I’d fail every one. Thankfully, I have spell check. It doesn’t absorb the suck from my writing, but at least you know what it means!
Sorry I don't have anything more interesting to talk about today ; ). I'll see if I can drum up something more interesting for tomorrow. Maybe about how I have seven hundred uses of could, would and should in my current MS. That I have to edit. Right now.
Can you hear my sigh through the internet?
