I'm back! And it's Friday! Life and work have been crazy, but I'm ready to get back into the full swing of this here blog.
When I write longhand, I'm a huge fan of the ampersand. I use it liberally in almost all situations that call for the word "and."
The ampersand (&) is actually a stylized version of the Latin word et, which means "and."
This is just another example of how important Latin is to English today.
