Hey! It’s snowing!!! Not outside but right here on this blog! I am officially in the Christmas spirit. Post your questions and I’ll answer them in tomorrow’s holiday mailbag.

Hey, you know what’s even more frustrating than learning a foreign language? Educating someone on the fickle nature of English grammar. I’m the last guy you should be asking about the intricacies of non-continuous verbs and dangling modifiers. Apparently, while “Because that’s the way it is.” may have worked for Walter Cronkite, it aint working for this guy, proving a rather unpopular response to the various questions Akemi has thrown my way. Equally unpopular answers have have included: “It just sounds right/doesn’t sound right.”, “It’s hard to explain…” and mumbling something incomprehensible before trailing off and feigning distraction by some mystery phone text. I liked it better when my contribution to Akemi’s ongoing English-learning program consisted of reading and explaining old Far Side strips.
