Is it wrong that I was delighted that I got to write this sentence at work?

If that's wrong, I don't want to be right.

No, it's not at all wrong in my opinion. I'm glad someone managed to find an excuse for using both those words so close to each other!

It's neat that you got to write it in a non-mental health context.

Heheh, that's great.
It's so confusing the way some Americans confuse some words, or spelling.
Especially for someone that's used the Internet to polish his English, there have been some misspellings so frequent I have to wonder if what I know is the real spelling or not, like "grammer"; it would seem nobody writes grammar

Being affected by the effect of good writing...

Once in a while I go into a blue-pencil fit and post a grammar snark.

I cannot help it. It is no affectation to say that my affection for decent writing causes indecent subpar writing to affect me so.

Heh. HehHEHheh. I share your perverse pleasure. Be pleased with yourself, and we'll be pleased vicariously.
