I got an email advertisement for a grammar class being held nearby. In the ad was this:
But, boy, was she S-L-O-W ...
Gail would sweat over every sentence, pore over grammar guides to get everything right, and stay late to proof her projects. (What a toll it took on Gail!)
Emphasis mine. Pore over grammar guides? Gaaaahhhhh! It's pour, not pore.

Ouch. Talk about embarassing!

Update: In the comments, Tim points out that I'm the one who has been wrong all this time and it really is pore and not pour. Hahahaha! What a dufus! Oh well, now I know the right word to use.

Uh, KT? I think you better check your dictionary. Mine says that "pore" is correct here.

Really? Then I've been doing it wrong all these years!


I'm signing up for the class now!

Time to recuse yourself from grammar grading! :)
