The Grammar Belle

Spiffing y'all up, one typo at a time

Are you stepping into the Twilight Zone? (I listened to a lot of ’80s music on my road trip this weekend.)

It may seem to you today as if you’ve stepped into some sort of parallel universe: the Texas Rangers made it through this season’s 162 games with fewer than 100 losses, the Cowboys beat the Saints (and looked really good doing it), and I’m back to blogging after a 4-month-wow-I’m-being-too-lazy-and-dull-to-blog hiatus.

But it’s all true, y’all. And, to add to the gloriousness, fall is here. Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back at Starbucks and I’m back to writing your favorite grammar blog. It’s also the season of my birthday and the start of boots and jeans weather. Eventually. It’s still in the 90s here in Big D.

While my regular readers know that I’m not much of a football fan, I still keep an eye on the latest happenings with my SMU Mustangs (they’re abysmal) and the Cowboys. A couple of weeks ago, I was watching the local news and this little gem caught my eye:

It might be fascinating to watch tempers "flair," dontcha think?

It might be fascinating to watch tempers “flair,” dontcha think?

I guess I should thank these folks for jolting me back into blogging. As a thank-you gift, perhaps I’ll send a dictionary.

Thank YOU, sweet friends, for reading! Please remember to subscribe, follow me on Facebook and Twitter, and send your friends.

Missed y’all,

P.S.
THIS is Flair. Ric Flair:

Ladies and gentlemen, the flamboyantly fabulous Ric Flair!

    The first thing that came to mind was Rick Flair. The second thing I thought about was, “Yes, you can wear the minimum amount of flair but we want our employees to do more than the minimum. You do want to succeed don’t you?”
