PROOFREAD BEFORE YOU POST
I don’t correct people’s grammar when I’m not teaching.
Especially on line.
And auto correct can be a jerk.
I make plenty of mistakes myself.
I try to overlook it when I see it online.
Today I read an entire conversation about a dessert tortoise.
The first post was about a pet dessert tortoise.
And all of the responses were about other people’s pet dessert tortoises.
Every single person in the thread spelled desert wrong.
In my mind, I pictured a slow-moving tortoise covered in whipped cream and chocolate syrup with a sprinkling of salmonella.
It’s a desert tortoise.
Not a dessert tortoise.
