The 1st Amendment Says I Can Start Sentences With And, Or, & But

Remember back in whatever grade that was when your teacher told you to never start a sentence with a conjunction? I kind of remember it. But I never understood that rule. Why can’t I start a sentence with a conjunction? Who decided it was bad? We do it all the time when we’re speaking. For example:

“Let’s have homemade pizza tonight,” the BF says.
I shake my head. “But it’s too hot to have the oven on.”
“Or we could have sandwiches.”
“And ice cream?” Hope shoots me up to my tip-toes.
The BF shrugs. “Ice cream sandwiches it is.”

See? If I can start sentences with conjunctions, you can do it. I give you my permission. ‘Tis a silly rule.

P.S. Yay! Ice cream sandwiches for dinner!


  1. I think this post was to justify you having dessert for dinner 🙂

    But, yes, I agree. Tee hee.

  2. Ahhh who doesn’t love dessert any time of the day:)
