Idiot-proof spelling

 Helen’s Dad made a point of mentioning he took this photo at his hometown parade.

MRP isn’t sure I’d be quick to point that out, necessarily.

  1. Now I feel like I’ve betrayed my hometown with that submission. Hope you don’t think we’re all stuipid morans !

  2. Don’t be too embarassed, Helen’s Dad. Idiot’s abound everywhere and idoiot’s, too.

    Thanks for the blog! I just started reading it. I, too, am a person who thinks grammar and spelling are more than just silly rules. Where will our communication end up without it?

    I don’t blog about it, but I’m attempting to provide as many tips as I can on my site. For more, visit http://www.shawnshearer.com.

    Keep up the great work! And thanks for caring.

  3. Hi Shawn, I agree that grammar is more than just silly rules, and I’m intrigued by ways of exploring rules about language without being too didactic about it. I also think that talking about language should be a lot more fun than it is . . . Thanks for visiting — your site is interesting, too!
