Sorry about that y'all...
I didn't mean to send that to the list... I meant to send it privately.
While I'm here, though, I would like to pose a question...
I have heard the phrase, "as it were," such as, "The ball was round, as it
were." The question I have, though, stems from the use of the plural
past tense "were." If it were to be "grammatically" correct, would that
not be "as it was"? Or is this a regional type of thing? Just a thought!
Thanks for reading!
