He could hop on the one I failed to mention but would be important to have for someone travelling from town to town frequently.

OK, I'll be the first to admit that I tend to let the who/whom difference fall by the wayside and just use "who" for both subject and object except for in formal writing, but this online tutorial had me nearly in tears trying not to laugh out loud at my desk:

I have a vocabulary in excess of 75,000 words, and I'm not afraid to use it!

Now that is funny.  Too bad they don't appear to have one on the use of commas.   ;D

I've printed Evie's comma reference, so I'll have it handy for my next story.  Though I'm sure Evie will still find a few errant commas lurking.  ;)

ROTFL!

The children with whom I have shared this will never forget this tidbit of whimsical wisdom.

And I will know whom I should blame when they start drawing mustaches on each other and hitting the bourbon!
