Bob Belvedere: Pet Lover

23 November 2015 @ 07:56

I have a lot of pets. Only four of them are cats. The rest are peeves – and, boy, I’ve got a boatload of them.

Over at Protein Wisdom, Friend In The Ether Sdferr posted the following comment a few days ago:

Shakespeare throw in stocks for penning Sonnets. Shut up Will! Just shut up!

He followed it up with a correction:

n

Actually, if SD’s intention was to ‘get with’ the modern way of speaking, the original spelling was correct – as with, say, ‘I seen him run’.

Drives me, with apologies to Ms EBL, batshit crazy.

Shoot me now.

…And don’t get me started on diff’rent or did’ent.

    I’m afraid I don’t know much about grammar. But I do love kittens. So soft and furry.

    Maybe it’s this twitter world we live in now. Every letter in a word saved and all that, but yeah I see where you’re coming from. Sometimes I even use abbreviated words like ‘ bout for about. SWIDT? Didn’t even save a space because of the punctuation.

      I use ’bout [or words like ain’t] as a matter of style – to add a certain, desired flavor to my writing.

      I suspect you do as well, Mike.

      The words did’ent and diff-rent, etc, I think, started-off as lazy speech. Same thing with: ‘I axed you’.

    I can’t play over at Protein Wisdom. They use OpenID, which falsely claims to work with WordPress. I can’t sign in to WordPress over there.

      possibly you can rkae, if you work through the registration routine Jeff instituted sometime back. There’s a button in the left side-bar at pw. Mebbe try that.
