Occasionally when I speak, my PG county upbringing flows out of my mouth without any thought. For example, today I said to a friend, "you had been decided that...". This was followed by my own outburst of laughter at myself, that I didn't even realize I said it. Normal people don't say things like this, do they? Grammatically correct speakers would say something like, "You had already decided that." RIGHT? I think I generally use good grammar. My mom is still a grammar correction queen, and therefore I (and my sisters) all seem to be as well. So I don't think I normally speak like this. Or do I?Oh, PG County, I have to love you. Have to. Because I am still here.
*another favorite is: "we had been done that"
