Schoolmarm Grammar

Note to the blogosphere:

It’s not “should of,” or “would of” or any other modal auxiliary + “of“. It’s modal auxiliary + “have“. I “should have,” I “would have.” You’re being confused by the pronunciation of contractions like “would’ve,” or “should’ve.”

And while we’re at it, trying to sound fancy at an upscale restaurant by saying “salad nee-swa” just makes you look ignorant and pretentious, which is both annoying and amusing to those of us who are enlightened and pretentious, who say “salad nee-swahz.”
That is all.
