Oh, and typing the word “weird” so many times in my previous post reminds me of a Calvin and Hobbes cartoon I saw years ago.
I don’t remember the specifics, but Calvin is reviewing the spelling rule “i before e except after c.”
Then someone says, “What do you think about that?
And Calvin says, “Weird.”
For some reason, that really cracked me up. Probably the subtlety of it.
