I'm a grammar snob. I will post quotes at Facebook when newscasters use incorrect grammar. Spelling mistakes bother me.
And suddenly I realized I have made two spelling errors in the recent past, here at my blog. OOPS! I'm red-faced.
Recently I said, "without further adieu..." I know it's supposed to be "without further ado..." Why did that happen?? (Rationalization: I majored in French, and French was on my mind.)
Yesterday I posted a photo of my quilt made of "selvedge" edges. I meant selvage!! At least in this case I used the British-English spelling for the word, and it carries the same meaning. I can't say the same for my "adieu" mistake.
Just wanted you to know, in case you were thinking 'oh, we caught her!' that I am aware I was in error, and I humbly apologize.
