Editor’s Corner: The 12 Days of English–Day 1

On the first day of English

My true love gave to me

A contest to keep me busy!

Yepper, it is time for another Editor’s Corner contest! Here are the details:

You can enter two different ways: by sending me the name of a new subscriber (including your own name if you don’t currently subscribe) or by sending me one of your favorite idiomatic phrases. What do I mean by an idiomatic phrase? Well, Donna gave me a great one that her dad says when she asks how he is. Daddy Bradley’s response is, “Finer than a frog hair split four ways and tied up in bow knots.” Someone else emailed me and said, “When I was knee-high to a corn cob…”

You will be entered into a drawing one time for each expression or each new subscriber you recommend. Send your entries directly to me at

The prizes?

Since we will have a new president next year, the first prize is Richard Lederer’s book American Trivia. The second prize is your choice of t-shirt (I have couple of them with funny grammar sayings). Everyone who sends an expression my way will have it published in a future blog, unless it isn’t fit to print, so try to be nice!

Submissions are due by the 12th day of this celebration, which is actually December 23. I will announce the winners on December 27 and send your gifts then.

Good luck!
