I'm sure that my grammar is sometime flawed (maybe more than sometimes), but I try. Also, if I had to be a master speller to save my life, I would currently be residing six feet underground. But. . . there's a but. . . I really get annoyed when I hear people put an and in the year. I hear it everywhere. Even in places where they should know better, or they should at least have someone who knows better to tell them not to do it. What I am talking about is when someone says the year 2009 as "two thousand and nine." There is no and!
