I always suspected as such, having been a former English teacher and all that I am a…

Grammar God!
You are a GRAMMAR GOD!

If your mission in life is not already to
preserve the English tongue, it should be.
Congratulations and thank you!

How grammatically sound are you?

Haha. I too am, apparently, a grammar god. So, that must make us the most grammatically correct blog in the universe. We rule!

Except, for my tendency to overuse commas, that is. Gotta work on that…

I may be a Grammar God, but I’m a stylistic nutjob. I like to insert parenthesized thoughts midsentence all the time.

I also overuse commas. I had a Russian tell me that you can just throw them all over the place in Russian, so they liked the way I use them.
