I Before E

Recommended Posts

Why do they even have an "I before E" rule, anyway? It's not the most solid rule in the world. I don't know how many spelling mistakes I've made because I thought I was following that rule. 😫

Our language is rich, wonderful, and insane. I love it, but I also have the deepest respect for those who've learned English as a second language, and view with awe those who've learned it well.

When I was a little girl I dreamed of these odd little Martian-type creatures that I'm not sure I could adequately describe unless I drew one. They sort of resembled Q*bert with hair. Lol! 😂 

 

Oh my word, what was I thinking?! 

I meant to post this on the Dream Genre topic!! This is absolutely the height of embarrassment for me. 😓

To quote Brian Regan, a wonderful comedian who is clean 99% of the time:

 

"I before e, except after c, or as pronounced as 'ay' in neighbor or weigh. And on weekends and holidays and all throughout May, and YOU'LL ALWAYS BE WRONG NO MATTER WHAT YOU SAY!"
