Anonymous Cowards

I think it's kind of funny that I keep getting nasty comments from an "anonymous" person. They are picking on really odd things such as how I use my pronouns, or other silly stuff, just to have a bone to pick. It's even more funny that they make themselves unknown. I got a comment that said to learn to use my pronouns correctly. Who takes the time to comment on something like that? LOL. They commented on a funny post where I simply copy and pasted something from a separate source, 19 ways to Maintain a Healthy Level of Insanity, and then they picked on the pronouns. Okay, someone has just a little bit too much time on their hands. It's okay though! My husband reminded me that good people always get picked on, that's just life. He said the Duggar Family probably gets hate mail all the time. Okay, good point. Jesus got persecuted all the time. People tried to find anything they could to make him look bad. It didn't matter though because Jesus knew who He was and didn't need acceptance of it. Since "anonymous" is to scared to let themselves be known, I thought I would write a personal blog just to you. If writing sarcastic remarks on people's blogs helps you to pass time and feel better about yourself, then by all means, go at it. It's water off a ducks back. Have fun.
To my blogging friends:
You will be pleased to know that this week just happens to be Pronouns Week. The boys and I are learning all about pronouns. I thought it was kind of funny. The timing and all. :D

Don't you just hate nitpicky people? Nitpicky for no darn reason! They need to go and get a life!

Well, it's understandable to get bent out of shape about pronouns sometimes. If you were blogging for a living and had an editor, it would be a totally understandable thing for someone to wonder, "Wow, what's wrong with you guys?"

But a personal blog in which the author takes on a "chat" sort of tone with the readers is a different story. I'd agree with R.L. there; they do need to get a life (yes, I see the subject/object disagreement, but was figuring "they" could share).

Does your commenter not realize you're blogging between loads of wash while three children are asking you for something, another is crying and you're wondering what another one's into? Hmm? That would whack more than a pronoun or two out of place for most people.

Ha ha, Mrs. C, you always make me laugh! You are so funny. Actually, that post she is picking on with my pronouns, I didn't even write! I got a funny email and I used it for a blog. So, all I did was cut and paste. I didn't even check it. You are always so silly... but also encouraging. That's why I love reading your blogs. :)
