    You know you ended a sentence with a preposition, don't you? What did you do that for?

    I was once married to an English teacher.
    Correction was a daily routine.
    Not sure the correction was much of an improvement , but I’m not an expert.

    I was going to ask why leave one dead business for another.
    Then I noticed he said buy a truck, not buy a van.

    He may not comment quickly. Probably buried in his work.
    People are dying to get into their funeral home.
