Aaah so

grammerlySaw this on Facebook today …some of my greatest hits of pet peeves are in there. Misuse of affect/effect and your/you’re can turn me off of a story in a minute. And “could of”?!? Seriously?

I know, of course, that perfection does not exist but proofing and editing do.

Full disclosure, here’s one of my grammar faux pas. I almost always have to look it up …but that’s the point, I look it up.
