Bonus: Knowing that I have to tell the difference between "lie" and "lay" makes me feel like General Pickett charging his doomed division up Cemetery Hill. I think euphemisms are just another word for nothing left to lose. Having to conjugate an irregular verb feels like a kick in the gut from Jackie Chan. I'd rather shoot myself in the foot than be asked when and how to use the possessive case before a gerund. Chewing ground glass is more appealing to me than having to write a resumé and a letter of application for a job (no matter how good the job sounds). I'd rather dive into a pile of double-edge razor blades than have to distinguish between "who" and "whom." I have to write a 20-page report on employee morale? Beam me up, Scotty. Having my finger slammed in a car door is less painful than knowing if I should use an adjective or adverb after a linking verb. I'd sit two inches from a speaker playing Whitney Houston when she hits that high C if it would get me out of writing a bad-news business letter. Rip out my intestines with a fork? No problem.
