Guest Napper #41

5 Oct

If I don’t post this now, I’ll have to wait, as the grammatically challenged might say, a “whole ‘nother year.”

Oh, yeah.  You heard me.  This writing teacher is using her nap blog to finally start complaining about annoying grammar trends.  Tomorrow, I might choose a whole ‘nother one.

Anyway, if I don’t post this summery (not summer-LIKE, TV meteorologists…) floating nap soon, it will be too autumnal (not FALL-LIKE, TV meteorologists…) outside for us to truly appreciate it.  Instead, we’ll just say “Brrrrrrrr” and think that it’s way too wintry (Oh yea – it’s ON meteorologists.  WINTER-LIKE is goin’ down, too) to enjoy the peaceful scene it represents.

Grammar griping aside, just take a quiet moment and listen to the water lapping gently at the edges of this picture, as little Reid drifts off to dreamland.

Let's post this swimming nap before it's a MUTE POINT. (cough)

Thanks to Robert and Brittany for this picture. They promise they removed Reid from the water before he became tragically PRUNE-LIKE.

Go forth and please avoid begging any questions, folks.  I guarantee, you are using the expression wrong.

    I would love to be napping at this point in time, as even though I’m not a grammar Nazi, I do have an acute appreciation for correct usage. This week alone I have heard someone say “ironical” and “surpose.” I “surpose” I should let it go, but I can’t “coversate” with someone who actually uses “ironical” in a sentence.

    See? I need a nap.

      Abby – I can’t qualify as a grammar Nazi, but I surpose you don’t have to be a grammar Nazi to dislike “summerlike” as a word.

    On the other hand . . .

    Not without the first hand, people.

    I think pool naps sound lovely. So, I don’t know, snooze-ness. In a summer-ish way. No?

    Love your blog and definitely appreciate today’s post, not just for the adorable sleeping baby but because I hates bad grammer to. Supposably. Irregardless, See what I did there?

    Oh so cute! And it reminds me that I need a vacation. Bah humbug.

    Do you know that I once quit a job in large part because my boss used the word “resolution” as a verb? “Let’s try to resolution this right away!”

    Meanwhile this nap looks so freaking pleasant. I’m now jealous (of a baby) and sleepy.

    ahem – wouldn’t we be using the expression wrongly? Perhaps only up here in Canada where the autumnal weather is getting really cold (never real cold). Either way, I’m happy. The only grammar move that enrages me is the apostrophe catastrophe. They drive me to vandalism. Your’s truly, Leah

    Irregardless, the summerish pic makes me pleasured.
