I will get to the details of my exciting new life in a moment, but I have to mention one thing first.

As you know, I've been trying to give up my grammar-correcting ways.

I braced myself when I found out that a new anti-smoking law came into effect a couple of days ago. I was certain (with good reason, I think) that people would be "fuming" all over the news coverage, and then I would have no choice but to pull out my beheading knife.

I listened to the news on Monday morning. No fuming.

I bought the paper on Monday morning. No fuming.

I watched the news Monday night. No fuming.

Today was the real test. Today's paper would be the first chance for reporters who had found one or two smokers who were mildly annoyed about having to buy their cancer sticks from behind a curtain.

You will never guess what happened.

Not one person was fuming. A few people were mildly annoyed.

I think you know where I'm going with this.

Obviously, this is due to my diligence. My efforts have paid off. Clearly, I can't stop now.

I for one am pleased (and a little fearful) that's she's back. I knew it would be a short-lived hiatus.

Yes, those of us who fear we may face her wrath for the presence of a dangling participle recognize that there is a higher purpose she serves that must continue.

Get out that red grease pencil, baby girl and get back in the ring!
