Proper grammar???????? explained

sonnysonny Posts: 467Registered Users
Just want to make it clear to everyone that I am not critiquing anyone's grammar. My husband was actually correcting my grammar and for the life of me, I couldn't decide whether it was proper. Just wanted to explain that since it has previously been misinterpreted as mocking another board member. I was talking about my new baby's change in appetite.

    For what it's worth, when I read your original post, I didn't think you were mocking anyone. I thought it was exactly as you put it: you were trying to figure it out for your own edification.

    It's kinda hilarious that you did the multiple ? thingy again here, actually, given the way that thread went. :laughing9:

    Glad to hear it! I could care less if someone misspelled or punctuated a sentence incorrectly. :glasses9:

    You mean you couldn't care less? :wink:

    [Sorry, I really couldn't resist! It was just there for the taking.]

    I have no idea, it's too funny. You are right, I guess, "I could not care less". I have issues with my brain, ever since I started the sleep deprivation that goes along with a newborn.:wink:

    Right? I must not post here enough anymore if we're accusing one another of mocking just for asking a question.

    I never thought you were mocking anyone either. I assumed it was a question about yourself.
