#BadWordWednesday : Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda

This regretful trilogy is often misspoken as could of, should of, and would of. Misappropriating “of” for “have” is just lazy enunciation from the useful contractions of could’ve, should’ve, and would’ve.

Remember this, “of” speaks to a comparative relationship between one thing and another.  Whereas “have” is a verb, an action word, that speaks to an activity done, doing, or could have been, should have been, or would have been under favorable circumstances.

How to fix it: just don’t say it. Okay?

Gray Matter *

Gray matter…

…contains most of the brain’s neuronal cell bodies. The grey matter includes regions of the brain involved in muscle control, and sensory perception such as seeing and hearing, memory, emotions, speech, decision making, and self-control.

Ergo, this blog is titled Gray Matter, a repository of sensory perceptors on overdrive as you see, hear, memorize, emote, speak, decide to share, and lose all self-control when reading these posts, coming to you no more than three times a week, and sometimes less.

The grey matter in the spinal cord is split into three grey columns.

The anterior grey column yadah, yadah, yadah — and which I call #MorphologyMonday
The posterior grey column yadah, yadah, yadah — and which I call #BadWordWednesday
The Lateral grey column yadah, yadah, yadah — and which I call #FixItFriday

This blog, a massaging of your gray matter, three times a week.
Get smarter. Laugh harder.
