I used to be friends with Word’s Editor, but lately I’ve been visiting with Grammarly. She’s intelligent and polite, but a bit of dictator.
While I appreciate her gentle reminders on spelling and punctuation, I can’t help wondering if she’s trying to change me. She doesn’t seem to approve of my style.
Don’t say anything, but Grammarly can be opinionated. At first, I let her browbeat me into changing things around, but as we got to know each other better, I started to wonder…
Grammarly’s suggestions, although made with the best of intentions, are, dare I say it?
She’s not a party girl, if you know what I mean? No sparkle, no shine. It’s not that she’s wrong, but sometimes, she’s wrong for me.
Oh, we’re still friends. We’ve just agreed to disagree, and just between us… Sometimes, I ignore her.
