11/8/16 - FINALLY!!!

Finally it's here!  I can't believe we've made it.  It has been such a long race since last year.  Today we are...

One week until my birthday! 

Woohoo!  I betcha thought something else didn't you?  Heehee, I'm telling you, join the hashtag republic #keepDawnweird
So I thought working up until my birthday I would post about some of my pet peeves. 

Now I'm no grammar cop, nor do I play one on TV, but some of this stuff makes people sound stupid.  You have no idea how many times I have to look up a word's spelling.  In grade school I was an ace in spelling, now...stinks.  I admit I'll throw a comma in there just because but most of the time on my longer posts I'll go to paperrater.com just to check.

Today's pet peeve:  See

"See" is the present tense of the word.  Example:  I can see you are loosing weight.
"Saw" is the past tense of see.  Example:  I saw the most beautiful sunset yesterday.
"Seen" is the past participle of see.  Example:  I've seen that you are feeling better.

That was your English lesson for today, now on to my peeve.  Most of my peeve is on Facebook and here it is:

I seen something blah, blah, blah.  Now when I see this I either keep scrolling or don't finish reading.  When we make statements that are trying to convince someone of something and you write something stupid like that no one will take you seriously.  I've seen this so many times that it is making my brain itchy.

So it's either I saw something blah, blah, blah., or I've seen something blah, blah, blah.

So in conclusion...don't make me call you out.  You are making my brain itchy so stop it!
