I have indeed fallen victim to the dangerous business of going out my door…
“You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to.”

–J.R.R. Tolkien

The Road Not Taken – Robert Frost

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

    Hello, Jenn!

    I find it quite fascinating, this internet world — where you, a young lover-of-language teach English in Japan, and I, a older lover-of-language teach English in South Africa, can “meet.”

    I read your “Downfall of a Former Grammar Nazi” with great interest, sympathy and amusement.

    Thank you for such a brilliant post!
