I have to admit; I’m pretty excited about this. It’s a new video we just had done to explain …
I can’t help it. I know this blog is supposed to be about writing and language, but sometimes I just can’t help sharing very loosely related stuff that amuses me. This is on of those posts.
I realize that this video only remotely relates to writing, grammar and/or language — the stated topics of this blog. But I just couldn’t help sharing it. One of my daughters and I watched it together this morning and literally LOLed.
Last year, I wrote on the challenge I face being both an English teacher/grammar stickler and a parent of teenagers. I feel an obligation, as all parents should, to help my children communicate well — to avoid the likes and ums and pronoun case errors that so abound in teenage conversation. But I also want my kids to know their dad listens to what they say, not just how they say it.
