Certainly if you adopt my convention (not recognised by the majority it seems) that there is only one birthday per person.

I fear though; my pursuit of the truth is fruitless .
Exactly. All the rest are anniversaries of said birthday.

At least you and I are on the same page. Or at least a reasonable facsimile of the same page! :D

Maybe it is time to clarify birthday and birth day.
Perhaps the latter does occur once per year??

Isn't being picky the reason for grammar rules? :cool:

There I go, again I am imagining I am wandering

Monty Python fans might recall that Dinsdale Piranha was born two weeks after his twin brother Doug and again a week after that.

I wouldn't crow about it until you get something back from checking and see just how good it is... 😜

I remember my first big editing project at my last employer, back in 2002. It was the first time I'd encountered the word incentivise. :oops:
I think I recall reading that John Howard had an election platform in 1987 based on "incentivisation".

I may be showing my age here, but I was not paying attention to federal elections in 1987! I was somewhat aware of Sir John, being a Queenslander, but that's the only electoral knowledge I remember from the 80s. :p

I'm just wondering if anyone has seen formal rules on how many "you know, like" are allowed per sentence. If there is, it seems not too many have heard about it. :rolleyes:
