Yay for donkeys!

"If thou be'st not an ass, I am a youth of fourteen."

Oh, the cruel irony in that statement for us youngsters.

But, we'll grow into it! I promise. Maybe.

Come to think of it, most of us are 15 these days.

However, the other day, this one guy in this one restaurant thought I was 12.

~deep sigh~ I thought I was done with that.

( Yes, I do realize I'm writing this somewhat in the style of a younger version of adds to it, if you know me well enough. )

Grammatical thoughts

"Thou hast most traitorously corrupted the youth of the realm in erecting a grammar-school."

After reading this particular insult, I couldn't help but think that Shakespeare wrote it with home school moms in mind. Really. They've made a bunch of snobs out of us!

Unlike most teenagers we shun the idea of borrowing something to anyone-- we lend!

And heaven forbid a song writer used the wrong lay/lie. The censure will be immediate!
especially if it didn't need to rhyme-- as you all know lay and lie are both one syllable.

Goodness only knows what might happen if 'their' playing. Oh! the horror from 'there' dog. The disgust from 'they're' being used as opposed to 'here'.

As for It's/Its...well it may be best to leave sleeping dogs lie.
