National Grammar Day!

I have a confession.

I judge you by your grammar.

Now, that don't mean I don't know how to bust out some slang. I'm cool with that.

But if you have bad grammar just because you're too lazy to learn good grammar?

I judge you.

Sorry.

I do try to keep it in check.

I've only once taken my red pencil to an already published book before sending it back to the publisher.

Then I realized I was being crazy, and I tucked my red pencil away.

But, fortunately, there is a day for people like me! A grammar day! A National Grammar Day, to be precise! Yes: you heard me correctly. NATIONAL GRAMMAR DAY.

My nerdy side just sighed with joy.

In celebration: here's a link to my Simple Rules of Grammar series!

I have a confession to make to...I judge people by their grammar too :D

Wow, I guess there really is a national day for everything.

Eric said...

Yeah, I have been known to chastise people for poor grammar (even if I only said it to myself). I can't help it, any more than I can help feeling a twinge upon seeing a misspelled word.

Guess I need to celebrate the holiday then, huh?

Marcia said...

Yep, I'm guilty too. If there weren't already a National Grammar Day, we'd have to invent it.:)

Elana Johnson said...

Oh, crap. Now I'm all freaking out that you hate my grammar. I think I know it, but yeah. Freaking out!

Glad to know there are other grammarholics in the world, but I'm a spellingaholic too. Really people--it's called a dictionary!
