I Have a Way with Words.

I just finished a discussion post for my online psychology class. There's a light at the end of the tunnel for this semester and I couldn't be happier! As I was reading through other student's posts, I had a sudden realization. Ok I realized it a long time ago, but today it was even clearer. Some people cannot write to save their life. Literally. If the fate of the free world depended on them writing one legible and thoughtful and God forbid original discussion post, we'd all be doomed.

It made me think how grateful I am to at least have decent writing skills. So I thought I'd share something I just threw together with all of you. Prepare to be amazed.

Pardon me for being rude.
It was not me, it was my food.
It just came up to say hello,
and now its gone, back down below.

Ok, so maybe I didn't write that. It might be from one of the most awesome movies ever. Can anyone guess? Fine I'll tell you. The cinematic masterpiece is: Austin Powers. Mike Myers really has a way with the ladies.

I know I'm not on the brink of writing the Next Great American Novel, but I do okay. I payed attention in high school English people. Maybe instead of napping and passing notes, a few other people should've been taking notes and actually reading the required books. And I slacked off in high school. I ditched my fair share of classes, maybe even passed a note or two. But I still managed to learn something.

Maybe I'm being too critical. After all, its a community college class. But come on people! How are any of them getting a decent grade? I guess we can't all be talented and awesome writers. And modest.

It's the rise of the texting generation. No one knows how to truly communicate any more-written or verbally. Pretty sad. (Please ignore that fragment.) Ha ha!

Some are gifted some are not. But amen. so true.

Janette: I've been guilty of a sentence fragment here and there myself. I've even been known to start a sentence with "and". There are just so many people who have no clue what they're doing. Mrs. Lee would have a heart attack if she saw how many people write "a lot" as one word. She drilled that into me in 7th grade. A lot is two words!
