If you make use of the word “bolster” without referring to a pillow, your credibility increases.
If you use “your” when you mean “you’re” on a sign in the apartment complex you own, your credibility plummets.

I’m freaked out by phallic symbols, but sometimes I think I am more freaked out by yannic symbols. What does that mean?

I just spent FIFTY-FIVE MINUTES looking for a parking spot. I spent more time trying to park than my class actually takes. I finally gave up, having wasted so much money on gasoline and single-handedly advancing the earth toward its globally warmed death by fifteen years. I went to Sweet Eugene’s (College Station coffee place) afterwards and irresponsibly bought myself a coffee beverage.
In my Spanish class on Monday the professor made everyone take turns reading the syllabus aloud to get us used to speaking in front of the class. I was appalled by my peers’ inability to read. I suppose I need to get used to it though, if I’m going to teach high school.
I was particularly appalled when this one girl read. She was so bad at reading, that I suspect she probably was dyslexic. So that would lessen my appall, except this happened: She was stumbling over the word “conscientiously” and another girl corrected her.
“It’s ‘consequentially’,” she said.
“Ohh, ‘students should behave consequentially…'”
