WFW-Disclaimer

This weeks Words for Wednesday is again hosted by Grannie Annie over at Fools Rush In. Like always the purpose of the words is to encourage us to write, a story, poem, or whatever comes to mind.

If you join in please stop by Grannie Annies blog Fools Rush In and let everyone know where your post is so that everyone can enjoy it.

Here are the words for today:
Onerous, meme, steadfast, yawp, copacetic, savant
and/or
akimbo, wreak, haphazard, advise, tare, vindicate

Disclaimer

Non grammatically correct zone

ampihibology....a phrase or sentence that is grammatically ambiguous.

My good friend Delores posted this word and definition on her blog a few days ago, I commented that it sounded like a description of mine, and I then decided to use it in a disclaimer to vindicate the grammar mistakes that I frequently make, but instead I am using it in this week's WFW meme because I feel that posting a disclaimer on my blog is really not needed.

Jimmy's Opinion is a grammatically ambiguous blog, punctuation mistakes and overuse of commas are to be expected, and may be noticed by everyone but myself. I am no savant but if something I write sounds normal it should be copacetic in spite of any grammatical mistakes everyone else sees.

Writing for me has never been an onerous task, I really enjoy writing stories and in spite of wreaking havoc on the English language with my haphazard use of commas and such, I feel that what I write is understandable.

Like most of us I write the way I talk, with the tare of my brain at zero I can plunge headlong into the steadfast task of telling you about my life and hoping to bring a smile to your face at the same time, without worry of being one hundred percent grammatically correct.

Any flub ups in the grammar department should be overlooked because even if you corrected me I am likely not to remember your well intended advise next time I sit down to write anyway.

With a yawp of excitement I see that I have nearly come to the end of this attempt at having a little fun at my own expense, while using Granny Annie's words at the same time, with my arms akimbo I believe that my job is done.

  1. I always enjoy your stories and really didn't notice any extraneous use of punctuation. Perhaps because I use a lot it myself lol.

    1. Hey Delores, Thank you so much, I don't really think I am out of line enough to complain, just thought it a good way to throw a little laughter into the challenge since most of us write exactly the same way ;)

  8. Grammar and spelling are not my strong suits. Everything I write needs to be edited. Fortunately, my wife was an English major in college.

    1. Hello Stephen, Having an English major in your household I am sure has taught you a lot more than you realize.

  9. I am not one to criticize another's writing style. However...I sometimes leave here without getting my fill of ellipses. Like draping myself in velvet...I'd use them three or four times per sentence, if it were socially acceptable.

    1. Hello Val, I will attempt to use more ellipses in the future, as far as an over abundance of them ever being socially acceptable...Is it a real ellipse if you accidentally use four dots, I have often wondered about this, but anyways...it's always good to see you Val ;)

  10. This is so clever Jimmy. I'm wondering how I'm ever going to fit 'yawp' in anywhere, and haven't even started any story yet. I'll let the words percolate a while longer while I work through my "to do" list for today.

    1. I have faith in you River, the words will fall right into place for you.

  11. I haven't noticed any hiccups in your writing, and I enjoy it all. As for commas I was taught that a comma should be thought of as 'taking a breath' so who cares if too many breaths are taken, that's what I class as verbal excitement - if you know what I mean. Keep up the good work, Jimmy.

    1. Thank you Valerie, A comma being thought of as taking a breath makes perfect sense to me, I appreciate you being here for me my dear friend.

    1. Hi Annie, That wasn't so bad after all, especially for one simply thrown together with a lot of big words. :)

      Thank you so much.

  15. Great job! It's fun to make fun of ourselves, isn't it? (Beats having somebody else doing it for us!)

  16. Hey Susan, I think we all should be able to laugh at ourselves, sometimes we are our own best material haha.

    And it does make it easier when others do it.

  17. Your posts are always fun to read.
    Remember though, we're not laughing at you, we're laughing with you...

    To me, English is like a second language that I haven't fully mastered yet.
    Unfortunately, I'm even worse at proof-reading what I wrote.

    1. Hey Pat, As long as we are all laughing, that is what counts, I try to read all of mine out loud before posting but it doesn't always work out, but it's all good in the end.
