Yesterday my Lightly Nerdy side and my Grammar Snob met and collided in the reference aisle of Borders, and then, much like the Wonder Twins, combined and activated their powers to make me into even more of a dork than I already was.
I was looking for some new Spanish reference books (nerd alert #1, because it was just for fun), and I found a new book written by the Real Academia EspaÃ±ola, “the institution responsible for regulating the Spanish language” (nerd alert #2-a whole institution dedicated to grammar-HOW COOL!) all about the correct use of spelling and punctuation in the Spanish language (nerd alert #3-HOW COOL! Can I please buy this RIGHT NOW?!)
Sometimes I am just stunned that other people agree to associate with me at all.
