Garner's Touch

Anyone remember my Ode to Garner? Here is an update:

Yesterday I was working through Legal Writing in Plain English exercises* and explaining to my boss what I was doing. I work at a Montessori school with 4-6th graders and we routinely work with grammar and proper language usuage. So I was showing her how similar the work is and she suggested I read Strunk and White's Elements of Style. Well, I thought it sounded familiar and this morning I realized that Garner wrote a similiar book titled: The Elements of Legal Style. So imagine my surprise this morning when I finally opened the book and realized it was autographed! I've been laughing with myself because I don't know if the nerd in me should be excited, or just humored. I suppose I could tell myself that it's not authentic but overall it was a surprise.

*Three of us are working through the exercises online if anyone is interested!

    I would be excited! (Then again, that's just the geek in me coming out.)
