12:30a - Another Grammar Gaffe

In Linsay McKenna's generally well-written story Sister of Fortune, p.106, one of her characters says, ..."I didn't think you'd corroborate my story or what I'd done to try and head off the whole thing."

He's one of her main characters, and in general, is portrayed as intelligent and well-spoken, which is what made the colloquialism "to try and head" instead of "to try to head" so jarring for me.

current mood: annoyed
