tonight while searching through home-schooling worksheets for my son, i found a little vocab sheet that mentions when to use "a" and "an".
well, i was simply blown away, because i never realized there was a rule. i just figured i always used it incorrectly.
the rule is:
its "a" when it is used before a consonant.
its "an" when it is used before a vowel.
and the sky opened up and sun shined down on my keyboard.
apparently i am the last person in the world to learn this.
campbell probably already knows.
so glad, i learn a great rule that everyone knows while researching the things i will be home-schooling my child. so glad.
my husband informed me that i do speak correctly. however, when you only have young children to talk to all day i highly doubt that.
oh well. i am sure this was taught to me while i was reading a book not paying attention. apparently i had the foresight to know that i would live my adult days in a time where microsoft word has my bad grammar back.
hmmm. well i find irony.
