|Bad Golfer Barbara spends|
a lot of time looking for her
in the cactus!
Even when I am on Facebook, I have to fight to keep Bad Barbara at bay. She can really be snarky and mean. I am sorry that she even exists but there you have it.
For example, today I found a post with the question that asked, "What do you think of the 'man bun'?". That would be a man with a bun on the back of his head to bring his long hair under control. Bad Barbara really wanted to say, "I don't care. I am too busy thinking about world peace."
I wish that people would use "I" at the beginning of sentence and "you or me" at the end, i.e. "Jenny and I went shopping." or "It was really too much for Jenny and me." See what I mean. If I were snarky I would take the time to point that I think that is a mistake. (I might add that I am not an expert so sometimes I wonder if I am right.)
But here is the thing about people like me that live in glasshouses, bad things happen when stones are thrown. You and I both know that.
So I will keep working to keep Good Barbara around. She is worth saving.
Oh, Happy Halloween!
You are correct in the grammar statement. There are so many egregious examples that I just have let my inner stickler go to sleep. :-)ReplyDelete
My inner stickler is not mean but it does pay attention.Delete
I don't care about the grammar statement. I am too busy laughing about the man bun!ReplyDelete
I saw that man bun thing and thought about it for a nanosecond before I clicked to something funny. I'd rather laugh. Also my grammer usually sucks, but when I see spelling errors on store signs I go wild!ReplyDelete
Those can be funny though.Delete
Uh oh, now I'm feeling self-conscious about my grammar. But I don't have to worry about the man bun. I have a man bald spot instead.ReplyDelete
You people make me laugh! Thank you for the comment.Delete
Social media has made us all lazy. I guess it would be more correct to say that it has made a lot of us lazy. I don't get out my red pencil for those sentences that don't have a subject because I just chalk it up to social media laziness. I do however find myself searching for the red pen when someone writes, "Jenny went shopping with Sue and I." My rant is over. I will also try to follow your advice and be nice.ReplyDelete
I didn't know about the man bun thing until I read this. Now, I understand some of those photos I've seen on Facebook of Lincoln with a bun on his head. Thanks for keeping me up with the times. I was totally out of that loop.
I am glad that I am not alone on the grammar bit. As for the man bun thing who really should have an opinion on personal taste. Don't you agree.Delete
I am enjoying your blog. There is always something interesting on here to read about. Thank you!ReplyDelete
Come on back some time. Thank you for enjoying. That is the idea!Delete
