to illustrate a lesson . . .

Want to introduce a discussion of annoying phrases that your students should edit from their writing?  This cartoon may help . . . it shows two squirrels, with one saying to the other, "Must you always begin every sentence with 'To put it in a nutshell'?!"

Have a great first day/week of classes.

At this point in time, I hope we don't have to push the envelope by talking about ridiculous phrases, annoying-wise.
