In honor of English teachers everywhere----
the people who are wired like I am..... and you KNOW who you are!
We are the ones who immediately notice mistakes on signs as we drive past them. (And sometimes we even call the business that owns the sign to TELL the owners about the mistake!)
We are the ones who circle misspelled words in the church bulletin when everyone else is singing the hymns.
We are the ones who hear the word "diagram" and get goosebumps because it reminds us of the days of diagramming sentences in our university Advanced Grammar class.
We are the ones who FORCE ourselves to use words like "u" and "ur" when we text, so we seem to fit in with the cool people a bit more.
And sometimes in conversation we even end our sentences with a preposition--just so people think we are completely normal!
So THREE CHEERS to English Teachers everywhere!
