Sometimes my inner grammar dork comes out. Like today. We were on fire with Subject Verb Object.

My mom credits my love of linguistics and structure to the fact that she was pregnant with me when she finished her master's in English. I credit her -- who else grew up with an innate distaste for it's mistaken for its and vice versa?

Anyhoo, we didn't get to the fun Sentence Snake exercise, but that's what tomorrow is for. (Feel free to note the irony of my dangling a preposition after lambasting the innocents who don't know a possessive neutral pronoun from a subject-verb contraction.)

PS: Thanks for Maria and Diana for correcting my slip-ups. Turns out my English is starting to become as bad as my Spanish. Sigh.
