Persnickety - Friday, Apr. 18

Persnickety, now there's a word! If you ever did laundry with me you'd know I'm persnickety about it.

Persnickety:
  1. excessively precise and attentive to detail; fussy.
  2. (of a task) requiring close attention; exacting.
Back to laundry ... many women are with me on this: No dark colors with whites (so the whites won't discolor into a muddled gray); not too much soap; make sure the whites are washed on hot, unless they're delicates, then they're washed in cold water on gentle setting. Ladies, doing laundry drives most men nuts. They'd probably agree women are persnickety when it comes to doing the wash.

But persnickety doesn't only pertain to laundry. Oh, no.

I do my best to be precise and pay attention to detail when I write. Proofreading is important to ensure words and punctuation are used correctly.

There you have it. I'm a persnickety, perfectionistic, precise proofreader.

Point made. Poof, I'm done!
