Oh, and just for grins, I wonder how many of my readers have ever heard of the word "forwent." When I was getting ready to use the word "forgo" in the first paragraph, I wasn't sure whether there is an "e" after "for" so in looking it up, I discovered the following:
forgo |fôrˈgō| (also forego)
verb ( forgoes ; past forwent ; past part. forgone ) [ trans. ]
omit or decline to take (something pleasant or valuable); go without : she wanted to forgo the dessert and leave while they could.
• refrain from : we forgo any comparison between the two men.
ORIGIN Old English forgān (see for- , go 1 ).
Well, you learn something every day! I have used the verb form AND the past participle, but I have never even heard of "forwent" before today.
