GCSE results are out tomorrow for our First Born No.1 Son and distractions are in order.
Anyhoo, getting back to the whole 'distractions' thing ...
But first, Insight Time - I can be a bit of an Apostrophe Nightmare. Of course admitting to that in writing is asking for trouble. No doubt my blog, my diary, my letters to companies whom I felt would benefit from my 'feedback' are littered with the kind of hideous mistake that has me tut-tutting into my tea cup.
But what the hey...sometimes you've just got to hold your hand up and put yourself out there.
(Do I mean that?)
So anyway, yep, I am that person. I behave like I have been caused actual physical harm when I see examples of Apostrophe Abuse. Take this, for example...
It begs the question, '£1's what are being dispensed?'
But what follows delighted me. I admit, as we drove behind this vehicle I was bracing myself for a good old bridle at any incorrect apostrophe usage. But I do believe they have done a good job on that score. What amused me enormously was why they felt the need to abbreviate every use of the three letter word 'and' - but wrote out, in full, 'Roast Pork with stuffing & apple sauce'.
|Gonna get me a lovely cup of Tea'n'coffee. Mmmm, delish.|
Is it just me who derives enormous pleasure from this?
Surely not ...
