Givng credit where it is due   3 comments

Occasionally I *might* use this space to rant about my pet peeves. šŸ™‚

So I just want to say that the other morning, I heard Todd Simcox, channel 5 (WABI TV 5) use proper English in a place where normally people don’t.

He said, and I quote:
“It will be cold all week, be sure to dress warmly.”

Do you see it?

Yep. -ly.

Not local yarn, not using an adjective incorrectly as an adverb, but making an adverb out of an adjective with the simple addition of -ly.

Todd, I am so proud of you. I hope you dress warmly and drive safely. I hope you continue to be an example for news people in Bangor and across the country, showing that it is possible to deliver the news and weather and use proper grammar at the same time.

Now, if you could please deliver an early spring, I would be very appreciative.

    • I know, isn’t it cruel? We are below zero tonight with scattered snow showers. I just got home from a meeting in Brewer, it was a cold nasty ride home. I am SO ready for spring. At least we move the clocks soon. A small step.

  2. Funny the things we notice….
