  •  Thanks, corrected. Could I ask you about the (3+ / 0-)

    combination of the apostrophe and quotation mark at the end of that sentence?  It looks a little suspicious.  My understanding is that quotation marks within quotation marks get changed to apostrophes. And, the period goes inside of all of them.  But, not it looks like three apostrophes which is stimulating my generalized anxiety disorder as well as aggravating my severe self-esteem and narcissism issues.

      I was probably blotto on weed during that lesson in 11th grade if I made it to class at all.

      Only recently discovered that there's no such thing as "its,'" actually..

      •  Well, you seem to have made it to more classes (3+ / 0-)

        than I did.  Thanks for the catch. I appreciate all feedback on improving my writing. I'm sort of tired of losing readers who think I'm stupid because I don't spell very well, and have some kind of learning disability when it comes to proof-reading.  I can read stuff I've written and somehow my mind corrects them after the photons hit my eyeballs but before they reach the center of my attention.

        My mind also races ahead, while my fingers keep typing, but my fingers try to spell phonetically, and always types you instead of your, and literally dozens of errors like that.  I'm left handed with competing brain hemispheres for dominance issues. which might have something to do with it.

        Thanks again.
