I've always tried to speak correctly and whenever I've learned that I've broken a grammar rule or have misspelled a word, I've made a point of trying not to repeat the mistake(s) in the future. But I've never really considered matters of grammar and spelling to be that important in the great scheme of things. I don't know why I've become a little obsessed with this.
Perhaps I'm just fighting off the ravages of loneliness. Oh, wait, that's what my imaginary baby is for.
Anyway, this is how bad it's getting: My friend Wade jokingly (or maybe not jokingly) called me a "grammar Natzi" last week in an email, so what did I do? Of course I wrote back to him to tell him that he spelled Nazi wrong. Sometimes I just can't stop myself.
