Certain members of my family have a penchant for pickled okra, and we have recently procured some from our friend Andy ,who had better success growing okra than I did. ( I planted two packages of seeds, and one sprouted 'til about an inch tall and then died.) I was bragging about this new-found okra source, and someone asked, "Where did Andy get it?"
And I answered, "He growed it."
I once returned a letter to my sister with grammatical corrections on it. I will never--I repeat never be living this one down.
