This is hilarious, thank you!

I married a non-native English speaker who went from barely speaking any English when we first met to now correcting my grammar on a regular basis. It’s such a central part of our relationship that I genuinely don’t know how I could ever have fallen in love with a native speaker — we are so often woefully ignorant of our own grammar rules!
