On Hiatus (and Generally Unfocused)

...mostly from men, but it seems to be impeding my writing as well. Trying to catch my breath so I can think clearly again. I'm sure once the oxygen returns to my brain the sense of dislocation will cease, and then I'll have something to share. You can always suggest topics. That might be amusing.

Till then, let me just say that I am irritated by signage in grocery stores corrupting the developing English language skills of children, immigrants, and the educationally underserved. It's not properly, "10 items or less." It should be "fewer," if my memory is servicable. But then, I'm oxygen deprived.

I saw a Thai restaurant today named, "Khun Dom." I'm just sayin'.

Who knows how many millions of dollars are being saved by having signs with fewer letters. English language skills be damned!

Yeah, small signs help them avoid problems translating into proper Engrish... *runs away cackling and dodging tomatoes*

Trader Joes has "fewer" right. Or would that be correct?
