Thread Name: BS: How's your weather ?
Subject: RE: BS: How's your weather ?
Mary in Kentucky, when I was little our teacher took us all outside into the schoolyard with a spade and we all dug a hole and buried "got" (written on a piece of paper).
To this day, I sometimes re-write an entire passage to avoid using "got"

You ain't gonna believe this, but after all my whinging about how hot and dry it's been, as I write this, it's snowing outside. Madness.

Oh. It's stopped.
