It has recently come to my attention that everything I thought I knew about grammar is wrong. Well, not everything-but I have found out to my complete surprise that not everyone in the world puts two spaces after the period that ends a sentence, and some people don’t put a comma before the final and in a series of three or more words. There are whole sets of the English speaking (or writing) world that think doing these things is ridiculous and I had no idea. It boggles the mind…I wonder what other surprises await me in the great morass of English grammatical rules.
