My Pitiful Baby Boomer Education
No, Mrs. Vander(something) is not to blame. I adored her, but somewhere around 5th grade I stopped paying attention to the proper use of punctuation. Today in my world, commas are like breaths and semicolons don't actually exist.
If you'd like to prove the value of your punctuational education, play the punctuation game.
For what it's worth, I gave up after "apostrophe," I just couldn't bear to go on to commas, much less semicolons. When you are sufficiently humiliated, try some additional self abuse with the grammar test.
Finally, brush up on your pronunciation.
After all that, I'm headed over to a more comfortable place. Does it mean anything that I knew all these?
