SOMEONE SAID TO ME ONCE
that there are people who correct other people's grammar, and then there are all the nice people.
So, farewell to my status as a nice person... though I am not sure this is actually "correcting," and I am not sure it qualifies as "grammar."
I think it's a little more of a rant. And it is this: I am campaigning against "pre," and the way we use it. Pre-plan your funeral. Pre-heat your oven. Pre-order your meal. Pre-sliced cheesecake.
Really? Isn't "pre-planning" what you do BEFORE you plan? Don't you just heat your oven? Order your meal? And isn't pre-sliced cheesecake cheesecake that, in fact, has NOT been sliced?
