Oh No...

So, I was having some lunch today over at a friend's house, who has a daughter about Laney's age. Laney and her daughter, Chloe, have the following exchange:

Chloe: ...and then she throwed it on the floor!
Laney: Don't say "throwed" say THREW! THROWED ISN'T A WORD!!!!

And I thought, "Oh, lordy, my child is inheriting my asshole grammar police tendencies. Perhaps I should attempt to circumvent this by stifling by own asshole grammar policing?"

Nah. Fish gotta swim, birds gotta fly. I gotta be me. To wit: "asshole" is not really an adjective, but I will allow myself a little poetic license as its adjectival usage effectively enhances intent. I let myself off with a warning.
