I was just cursing the internet wasting time i don’t really have to waste … (Tom Goodenough)
Mr Goodenough’s opening gambit might be true enough; but I’d be surprised if that’s what he actually intended to say.
I’m picking that Tom was actually cruising the internet …
When we write a blog post directly onto the screen (like I’m doing now), we’re bound to slip up from time to time: typographical errors of one sort of another, grammatical goofs … even stuff we could have left out.
Not everyone’s as fussy as I am – Grammar Police is one of my nicknames – but it really is a good thing to proofread what we write … or have a friend check up on us from time to time.
BTW: Tom Goodenough’s blog is interesting – even if he spells interesting at least three different ways.
