"Natural" Right of Way

Whenever two of us stop simultaneously at a stop sign, there’s always the question …


If the color of the other car is “primarily primer,” he has a kinda natural right of way …


or if he’s driving an old beater wounded on all four corners …


or a red or purple two-door …


or any Camaro or Mustang …

Bill,
thanks so much for visiting my grammar blog!

My niece lives in London but was born in Kentucky. Can you imagine her struggles?! We often compare spellings and sayings. Perhaps I should post a caveat on my blog that my advice refers to American English only.

Cheryl,

Could you kindly give me a link to your grammer blog>?

I have to write quite a bit in my engineering work and although I do much better than my contemporaries, I still strive to do better. As I write, I sometimes get to a point where I say to myself, "Is this stated properly?" How to change it?

Friend of Bill's for a lot of years (~'76, I guess).
