In such a manner is the princely chicken's dominion maintained. Frozen Yogurt-Covered Blueberry Bites! I know….I know….I admit it…I definitely have a frozen yogurt problem. :-) Every time I see a new way to freeze and eat yogurt…I completely lose my ability to think rationally! I become a one track mind, blinders-wearing, woman on a mission until I have appeased my curiosity/craving for this new treat! So to those of you who aren’t really big fans of yogurt, frozen or otherwise, I apologize.

As someone who slings red ink for a living, let me tell you: grammar is an ultra-micro component in the larger picture; it lies somewhere in the final steps of the editing trail; and as such it’s an overrated quasi-irrelevancy in the creative process, perpetuated into importance primarily by bitter nerds who accumulate tweed jackets and crippling inferiority complexes. But experience has also taught me that readers, for better or worse, will approach your work with a jaundiced eye and an itch to judge. While your grammar shouldn’t be a reflection of your creative powers or writing abilities, let’s face it — it usually is. Who and Whom This one opens a big can of worms.
