Forgive My Absence

by Charmaine on June 13, 2009

In early/mid April, did you notice a marked increase in misspelled words? A plethora of passive voice constructions? A severe upswing in uppercased acronyms? It was me (or should I say a lack of me) as I was thrown smack dab out of commission with what my husband calls a “life-threatening bacterial infection” and what I like to call “that illness that put me in the hospital for 12 days, about which I have no memory.”

I exaggerate: I remember all but four days. What matters most is that I survived — not only with all of my extremities, but with my editor’s sensibilities and sensitivities intact. I’m back to blogging, tweeting, and bristling when I see an apostrophe used to indicate a plural.

Thanks JD! And thanks also for keeping up with my blog. When someone posts a comment it just makes my day, especially a thoughtful one like yours.

This is, by far, the most interesting accident I’ve had! I absolutely LOVE your site! Especially, “bristling when I see an apostrophe used to indicate a plural.” Exactly! Bravo!
