5/16/2019 - I don't know if there is a cure...

Hello, my name is Dawn and I'm a pedant. I don't think there is a cure. I'm pretty sure there isn't a 12-step program to help me either.

I'm neither a linguist nor am I a grammarian (I think I should end the sentence and post right there but you know I can't).

I live in the state of Minutiae (or Minutia) so saddle up!

As a SAHM of Birdie and a part-time bed rider I have a lot of time on my hands. While you are at work I watch a lot of television and troll Facebook. When I see you have misspelled something it causes a physical reaction in my brain. Sometimes that physical reaction in my brain causes a physical reaction in my fingers. I just can't help it. Most of the errors I see are from someone other than my friends. If I correct my friends they don't hang around too long. You have to understand this is a disease (kinda like an alcoholic has a disease). I'm using a lot of parens today (I know when you use both they are parentheses). Most of the time the errors are in memes that you share.

Please stop sharing memes with incorrect spelling or grammar, it hurts me.

It's a disease
