My wife has a number of pet peeves, many of which I regularly indulge in. However, one I don’t (usually) get in trouble for is misusing apostrophes. That’s right, it irritates her to no end when she sees a misplaced apostrophe. With that in mind, I was glad to see she has a soul mate in Arianna Huffington who writes this blog-screed in defense of proper use of the lowly apostrophe.
I just printed a copy of Arianna’s (note proper use of apostrophe) post so Mrs. TEH can know she is not alone. Why print it instead of sending her a link? Heh heh, she accidentally blew up her PC today. More precisely, she corrupted her operating system in an ill-timed power strip mishap. She’s (another proper use of the apostrophe) in cyber pain. So, I have to provide her a hard copy of Arianna’s (I did it right again!) sympathetic grammar view. You, on the other hand, can simply click on the link.
