Six Correct Words Saturday

3 Aug


Last night, I dreamed about grammar.


I need to find a life.  Or at least a hobby.

    I think you must be the first person I have ever known to have such a dream. Amazing. I hope it came to a full stop fairly quickly.

    (Love Gemma’s comment!)

    I can honestly say I’ve had a dream like that. It occurred when I was working as a freelance editor. I guess you can never get away from your job!

    Have a good weekend. ☺

    🙂 Oh, T.Bud, I feel sorry for you. Been there, still got my foot in that doorway. My spelling has gone to pot. Thank goodness for Google’s “did you mean ___?” and “showing for ___.”

    You’re not alone. I love, love, LOVE grammar! It appears you are my soulmate and, because of this fact, I have a gift for you. An entire cartoon about the use of a semicolon. It makes me happy and it would be selfish of me not to share with you!

    Grammar nerds unite!! Happy 6WS!

    I dreamed about taking my pills.

    I ain’t not to sure but you might could be the only person whom grammer is what they done dreamt of.

    Ron, “The Grammar Nazi”, got himself into some trouble at work some time ago when he proofed / edited an email from the agency’s Director and it somehow fell back into the Director’s hands….

    I think I should have gotten a promotion, but no.

    Cute. LOL Stopping by from 6WS.

    I use exclamation marks almost all the time in brief comments. Is that sin?

    Of course.

    It’s the sort of thing I might do too – you are not alone… 🙂

    Some of us dream of lovely islands and then there’s that select few that dream of grammar. 🙂

    Hi, I love grammar. I am a journalist and writer, too. Seem writing takes up my life. 🙂 Thanks for sharing the funny comics too.

    I get a kick out of Grammarly’s work. My friend shares a lot of it on Facebook. I didn’t realize that exclamation point usage in the comment page was a sin, mea culpa. I like to show my enthusiasm. 🙂 It isn’t a French thing, more of an American thing.

      I overused them when I first started writing and I occasionally revert when I am enthusiastic about something 🙂


  15. Grannymar August 3, 2013 at 16:29 #

    Grammar, is that a disease? I think I done got the injections!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  16. restlessjo August 3, 2013 at 16:36 #

    Granma? She’d appreciate the cartoons. 🙂


  17. Tom Merriman August 3, 2013 at 19:42 #

    i hope this comment wont give u nightmare’s then, tilly!
    Hehehe!!! 😉

    I am an excitable person :> Grammar should express your emotion since you can’t see me laughing !!!!!!!


  19. colonialist August 3, 2013 at 20:39 #

    I do, too, now and again. She was a formidable Victorian lady who wouldn’t have approved being called that … 🙂
    And this is why I am a stickler for using Oxford commas!


  20. Mary Anne Komar August 3, 2013 at 21:02 #

    Last night I dreamt of England, and was speaking very bad German, learned 50 years ago! Bad grammar yes!!!!


  21. August 3, 2013 at 22:25 #

    It’s fascinating the difference that Oxford comma makes to the meaning. I think I am also bit of a grammarnerdv- I have been known to edit intrusive apostrophes from comments on my blog.

    Does the absence of a full-stop in my previous comment bother you? 😆


  24. Suzy August 4, 2013 at 03:34 #

    I have never dreamt about grammar but yes, amazing what a difference a comma or two can make. Nice.

    I love that last cartoon. You and ViV have both taught me a new word today.

    As long as it wasn’t a nightmare. (I’m a terrble grammar nerd myself.)


  27. SchmidleysScribbling August 4, 2013 at 17:38 #

    I’ve dreamt of individual words and then looked them up if I could remember them. Generally, I get them from books. I once dreamt I was sitting on a fence talking to my boss. This told me I was ambivalent about the guy. Dianne

    Hilarious post- I enjoyed it.

    Have you visited the Oatmeal? They have a grammar section you would enjoy.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
