Sunday Poser #74- Speaks to Me

This week my question is;

Do you like using emojis in your post, or texts?

Yes. I do like using emojis but, like commas, I use them far, too, often. LOL
Even ‘good things’ can be overdone.
They, like words, don’t translate to people in the exact same way. In the hyper-sensitive culture that created the concept of ‘hate speech’ (which has a fluid definition and is realistically just a tool to prevent speech), there’s no wonder that some people would find them childish or condescending. To those people I say, “Tough”. I’m responsible for my intentions not your reaction. 🙂 😀 ❤ 😉

Good Grammar

Good grammar never ends…

Use among when you say friends.

Say between when there are two.

Don’t say me and you.

Make a list, you’re at the end.

Unthaw  means frozen,  friend.

Ain’t  is not a word.

You don’t want to be absurd.

Less is an amount.

Use fewer when you count.

You are much too smart

To let speech fall apart.

There are rules in every game.

Good grammar needs the same.

Insides Out

You can’t listen without your ears ON.

The switch is under your chin.

It closes your mouth and opens your mind

And lets all the smarts come right in.

You can’t see if your eyes are closed.

I know, I tried this before.

There’s more to seeing than “meets the eye”

So look ’till those peepers are sore!

Your lips may move. Your breath comes out.

Talking is much more than sound.

Try not to mumble and wait for your turn

Or your thoughts may go “splat” on the ground.

Turn on those ears and open your eyes

And speak up but never shout.

 The whole you is awesome and deserves to be shared

Do let all your insides come out!
