TGIF #25

Barbie as the Girl with the Pearl Earring

Barbie as the Girl with the Pearl Earring

From the Inspiration Journal:

Listen to the MUSTN’TS, child,
Listen to the DON’TS
Listen to the SHOULDN’TS
Listen to the NEVER HAVES
Then listen close to me–
Anything can happen, child,
ANYTHING can be.

-Shel Silverstein

    Liked the shoes. Found the heart intriguing and overpriced. Really enjoyed the white people insights. Now, as to the semicolon bit – first off, it presupposes that the reader knows what a clause is and what might make it independent or subordinate. But I agree it’s a great semicolon handbook. Now, how about you and the grammar guy, or one of you anyway, explaining the adversative asyndeton and the copulative asyndeton. In a manner suitable for a family blog, of course…

    Hi Brad! All I can say is that I’m glad I was born speaking English (some will tell you that’s not an exaggeration!) and didn’t have to learn it as a 2nd language. I’m just as happy not knowing what all those things are. (Although it could make for an exciting high school English class!)
