Grammar is Like Breakfast

Whaddaya prefer? Yogurt and granola? Eggs and toast? Pancakes? Steak? or all of the above? No two people agree on the “proper” breakfast (or any other meal). So why should we expect agreement on the “proper” way we write and talk? Or even on some spelling choices? Think about it!

I happen to like all those things for breakfast, but not at the same time.

So do I! That's why I make certain choices on certain days and other choices on other occasions. I choose the meal to suit my preferences -- and my mood.
