Writers Workshop 3/24/11

My friend Samantha pointed me towards Mama Kat's Writers Workshop.  With all the stress of moving I figured why not give it a shot.

Something you do that drives your significant other CRAZY.

Oh man, it isn't easy to drive Ben nuts but there is one habit I have that annoys him.  I correct him.  He hates it.  Honestly I hated that he said things like "acrosst" and "nuke-u-lar" (especially considering his new job is in nuclear energy).

I did good.
No hun, you did well.  

He hates it.  He says it makes him feel stupid.  I know he isn't stupid, he's a very intelligent guy.  But...when he talks like that he doesn't sound very intelligent.

Stop correcting my grammarical errors
It's gramatical.  
I pronounce it differently.
You said a completely different word.  

I see the complete lack of ability for people to use the English language these days and I worry about Garrett.  I keep telling Ben that he's setting an example for our son.   And I'll correct Garrett too.

I do this too and it drives Steven crazy. I correct the television, other people's conversation, everything.

I do the same thing...constantly! It drives my poor hubs crazy, but he's a good sport about it. It's good to know and use correct grammar, but I could probably be a little kinder in my corrective approach! ;)
