Double trouble!

On Friday afternoon, I think the grammar gremlins were seriously out to get me.  First I saw this in my inbox...



And then just five minutes later, I saw this:




I guess the good news was that I didn't have to go searching for grammar errors to feature in a blog post--they just, like, showed up.  The bad news was that there's only so much abuse I can take from the grammar gremlins in one day, and even before those emails appeared in my inbox, I'd already reached my limit.  But I will have you know that I was a good little grammarphile--I did not scream, punch the computer screen, or find the nearest bar and do copious amounts of shots.  I did, however, stick my tongue out at the computer screen.  Soooo mature, I know, but I needed to retaliate against those little gremlins somehow!

Probably your wisest course of action, considering the state of your back. Hope you are feeling better to start the week!

Grammar gremlins definitely suck! Computer gremlins are just as bad (and they're always hovering by my desk)...

I just saw a peek/peak mix up on some HuffPost slide-show. I ended up frowning at it for so long that I didn't even read the related article.
