Unloading Brendan
« on: January 11, 2012, 09:31:44 PM »
Bill and I will be there to help unload Brendan!

The editor in me just cries out for a comma between "unload" and "Brendan," unless Brendan has gained so much weight that he needs to be unloaded. ;D

The former English teacher in me is compelled to point out, Red, that you sentence needs some help. As written, your sentence is a run-on sentence. It should look like this: It's okay; just say "Shut up, Red." Now go write the correct sentence 100 times.

As a former English student, Mr. Laepple, I'm compelled to point out the grammatical error in your previous sentence.   ;D ::)

I would reply... but I'm still writing my non run on sentences... how about dots...does that work?

How about this?   I would reply. However, I'm continuing to write my redundant corrected lessons. I forgot what I was taught in my Strunk and White's Elements of Stlye
