If you were able to bridge that gap in your head, then just scoot past it intellectually. I wrote this on my phone on a hot train with a yelping dog sitting next to me (all the while trying to avoid small talk with the woman across me in Russian about how hot it was)--yes, a poor excuse. But I always get my feathers ruffled when people take a moment out to reprimand about an obviously grammatical oversight--and it was an annoying one as there were a lot of them--to comment while baling on the topic at hand. Clearly, I am a fluent writer and speaker--actually fluent in 5 languages. Anyhoo...the Karen's are gone...don't know what you are talking about ))
