If I ever ...

I'm sure this will be the first of many "If I ever [do xyz] then do an intervention" blog posts.

Just ran across a blogpost in which the blogger was chiding people and "strongly urging" her readers to get with the times and only use one space after each sentence (instead of 2).

If I ever write a blog post to make fun of people, assert my dominance, etc. in the realm of grammar PLEASE do an intervention. That is not the kind of person I want to be.

I know a couple things about grammar, but my grammar isn't perfect. I try my best not to fuss at other people about their practices. (Unless, it's a professional document and people are paid The Big Bucks to write it and it's sloppy -- THEN you're fair game.) We're all amateurs. (Most of us, anyway.) No one is going to be perfect. Language, style, and rhetoric will be argued over until the end of all time.

Put your [body part] measuring sticks away. No one needs to know how big your [body part] is.
