For whatever reason, I started singing Lolly, Lolly, Lolly get your adverbs here at around 2 AM this morning after the thunderstorm woke me up. I have no clue why. I don't want to know why. The song just got me thinking about Schoolhouse Rock (btw, I own the 30th Anniversary DVD - drat, double drat, I just gave away how many years ago it was), which was a fun way to learn about grammar.
Ah, dear readers, you figured out my train of thought on this post: Grammar. How many out there have at least one, if not two, if not three, books about grammar to help you with your writing? Come on, now, raise your hands. You know you have at least one book someplace handy. I have more than one.
But . . . Schoolhouse Rocks . . . well Rocks! In the interest of it being Friday, and needing something fun this morning . . .
