Do You Want to Come With?

This week the Monday blog becomes a Tuesday blog so I can share with you a piece I have up at (in)courage.me today.

We midwesterners have a fondness for breaking a particular grammar rule. We love to ask: Do you want to come with?

My word-nerd self knows that we should never utter a question that ends with a preposition. Every preposition needs a partner, an object of the preposition. We really should ask, “Do you want to come with me?”

For a long time I resisted this grammatically incorrect trend and completed my question properly in true, former-English-teacher style.

But, true confession, I’ve started to rethink my grammatically correct position. It all comes down to that little word with. I think I have developed a “thing” for it.
