It's a verbal tic. That can tic people off.
Because they can't keep up? I'm telling ya', you should write a book. Oh, why aren't you on the add a line thread? We keep getting stuck.
Oh, lordy, another potential addiction??
Well, I just made it risque...I'm tired of talking about the dog but people keep brining it up.
Brining it up? That must have you in a pickle...
You're encouraging me, too?
Indeed, I am.
Uh-oh: that means that now I've got A Reputation.
Well and truly toast, I am.
I did that on purpose. Uh huh.
Well, you know what they say of preserved beef: Better to be pitied than corned.
I've just realized: Garden Dove's post title is discriminatory toward teachers. Hard to believe.
... And, as I was teaching my kids about the three branches of government the other day, I included the part about Congress having the power to declare war. One student (10 years old) asked why the president did it this time......
See, our kids notice.
'Cause we know she loves us.
HA HA, HO HO!!!
You'll have to teach them the word 'loophole'.
I find Bush's manner of speech appalling and embarrassing to me, as an American citizen. The road to his success was paved by silverspoons, how obvious is that?
silver spoons!! HA HA HA HA
As if talking with a silver spoon in your mouth improves grammar, maybe diction.
Sounds like Demosthenes to me.
This post contains a pun not a good one but a pun just the same.
the late (and admirably intelligent) Ann Richards, "he was born with a silver FOOT in his mouth (spoken at a Democratic Convention during Bush's first run for President).
I desperately hope that line is original, but *sigh* I probably borrowed it from somewhere.
410 posts wow
Let's see we have talked about race , social level, Canadian jokes, blonde jokes, Politics, the War act, Bush's intelligence, preserving beef, making people tense, nails on chalkboard, the socially disadvantaged, the "money language", The typos , proofread, demographics, Old English, Middle English, lazy southern tongue, "Code switching", Governor ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, the Mexican border, logorrhea, Scrabble, oh yea, grammar too.
He don't got one.
As I keep pointing out on the teacher-test threads, EVERYthing connects...
You guys had me up so late last night. I'm dragging here. But it sure was fun.
Yes. Where is Tigers to wake up the forum?
Teacher Groupie, do you know who William F. Buckley is? He used to have a show in the 90's called, "Firing Line."
Yes, dear, I'm afraid I am that old.
How is that old? He was on in the 1990's. So you're not...17? I figured it out.
Wait a minute, before we get started here. I was reading the guidelines and it says not to highjack a thread? Ooops...
So, I brought this up on the math thread, too.
1990's, not 1890's
You mean you have been tricking me and we have not been talking about grammar this whole time????
So now we've got numbers on the grammar thread and languages on the math thread. And that's a problem, how?
Well, I ummm...did notice that some others keep wanting to return to the complaint part...and I keep doing my best to ummm...change that. I was looking for fun, that's all. Selfishly, I admit.
What I like is when it goes all over the place so do what you like on the math thread....
'Bout time you noticed. (Smiles angelically)
