    If You Want A Friend....

    abbott,
    I knew I was dumb about grammar but not that dumb, well I did know I was that dumb. I sent stories to a teacher who lived in Sag Harbor NY, and I was always surprised at the mistakes I made when she returned the stories. I was going to write children stories but dropped out of class. That was a mistake on my part. I probably could have gotten them published and made a lot of money. In the last sentence I used (out of) and have been told that that is incorrect, as one should never use two preposition together. And, how many times do we see people using the word "You," incorrectly? Please don't count my mistakes in spelling as they are usually typos.
