You Expect One of Us To Admit Being Wrong?

Below, Victor asks whether my husband and I have come to any consensus about our grammar question. As if! I say "were." My husband refuses to trust me or anyone else -- probably wise of him under normal circumstances. He has decreed that "was" sounds better and he's sticking too it.

I'm right, of course.


So long as he doesn't let that, let's call it eccentricity, bleed into his legal writing, let him have his way.

My marriage has taught me to pick my battles carefully. Remember, I'm married to a lawyer, too -- one who hates to lose.

There's only one way to decide this, then...super-soakers at ten paces.
