I get in a lot of trouble. Especially when I do Sherlock impressions...

I agree with the whole correcting thing. MY mother has actually threatened to ground me if I don't correcting her. This is a typical conversation between us.

Mum: I hope you don't mind Becky, but I laid down for an hour or two.
Me: Mother, you lay down, not laid. You had a lie down, and therefore we should now refer to lie's past tense, lay. Laid is lays past tense.
Mum: Stop correcting me so often!
Me: I would not HAVE to correct you if you didn't make so many mistakes.

Don't you mean you 'would not' have to correct her? The frailties of typing. It's almost as bad as speaking face to face, is it not?

Now I feel stupid. My father was calling me to breakfast, I was rushing. I apologize.

You know, not just correcting grammar, telling people to shut up when they aren't talking, playing the violin when thinking ( it's out of tune and I don't know how to fix it :mad: ) and wondering what would happen with eyeballs in the microwave...for some reason, it irritates people, but not as much as my Sheldon impressions, or my creepy Moriarty voice.

My apologies for making thou feel as such.

Yes, I say thee, thou and thy randomly. I just love the English language so much, I have to use my favourite words.

We must have been separated at birth or something, pluzzle, I swear we must have been.

Another Sherlockism of mine - I don't want to learn about pointless things.

I don't think that I have OCD. I mean, I have my own little obsessions (I have to take notes the same way every time, I have to have my blanket over my ear and tuck in the comforter at the bottom of my bed, I HAVE TO correct grammatical and spelling issues, I have to alphabetize my books by author, etc.), but I don't think that I have full-blown obsessive compulsive disorder. I have a friend who I think has at least a touch of OCD. She has to do everything in fives, and I mean EVERYTHING. She walks up and down the stairs five times, brushes a part of her hair five times, plays games five times, so on and so forth. We were playing this game in a park near her house where we simultaneously passed a volleyball and a basketball. We didn't stop until we had gotten five passes in a row. Things like that, and her neat-freakness, make me think that she has OCD.

Apology humbly accepted. :)
I too often say thee and thou. I remember in my first year at school I shouted at a girl for pronouncing the like the rather than thee. I got in so much trouble.

How can you get in trouble for that?
