Word to your mother

Okay, it’s deep-seated, not deep-seeded and you never, ever flea from anything. You’re lovely. Look at your lovely horse. I know, I get it, words can be hard.

SIGH. It’s not even that words are hard, grammar is fucking hard. Get the words right at the very least.

“We have had a couple of distressing tautologies.”
I find myself at work reading Simon Heffer’s Style Notes and laughing. He is mean about journalists and you learn something too. I imagine he is a fun time at parties, with a monocle, a thin moustache and a general air of disapproval.
