Well, Pardon my Grammar!

I was at a conference yesterday and you know what blew me away? The fact that the new standard for spaces between sentences has changed from the old school two spaces to ONE! One space!! I am trying really hard to retrain these old thumbs from hitting the space bar twice after each sentence. It just feels weird! This is my first post with the new grammar and may I please say excuse me for being late to the party - all of those wasted spaces at work and on my blog could have been filled with an additional letter, a number punctuation or something.
How embarrassing!

PS - On second thought, you know, my poor thumbs wait a full sentence to do their little staccato dance at the bottom of the keyboard - I can't deny them least not yet.

It took me a while to get used to that, too. Ah, the perils of learning to type on an actual manual typewriter. Type your document then do a "find and replace" and replace all the double spaces with single spaces.

Nice tip - I may have to try it! I just can't belive this has changed, I mean, I thought things like this never changed.
Oh well, time to shift gears I guess.
