    For the tiresome pedant - which I most certainly am - the way you kept using words that were almost but not quite right was rather upsetting.

    Everyone in* life is so pedantic.
    Ain't no party like a pedant party because a pedant party is realistic and accurate in that it claims to have an end, in contrast to the end of the common ending "... don't stop".
