HUMP DAY GRAMMAR for October 29, 2008

So tonight's been a bit of a disaster. I went into the living room and noticed that part of the rug was wet. Then I noticed the wetness was creeping under my Phillies shrine. I started to get paranoid that said water would somehow manage to destroy the picture of me and Cole Hamels, so I called the landlord. At, like, 11 PM. Spent an hour watching him identify where the water was coming from (the water heater in the boiler room!), stop the leak, shop-vac up the water, and throw towels down on my rug. As a result, my living room furniture is all over the place, the Phillies shrine is half-dismantled, and I feel somewhat discombobulated.

But then I remembered...TODAY IS HUMP DAY!

I always have the damnedest time finding decent stuff for this Hump Day Grammar feature. I end up having to read a lot of sex blogs that, unfortunately, all seem to be too well-written to provide me with anything HDG-worthy. (If you see any grammar/spelling/punctuation mistakes that are sexual in nature, can you pretty please send them on over here? Pleeeeease?)

I was reading some random sex blog (well-written, of course--dammit), and luckily, it featured a picture of a product that included a cute little apostrophe error...



Did anyone else go to Pimps and Hos parties in college? I really enjoyed that part of sorority life. I miss roaming around in a short skirt, stilettos, and fishnets (actually, I still do this on occasion, but now I have no large group of girls tagging along with me--it's just me in tall heels all on my own). And then there was that one party where I used a bandanna for a shirt...I was (and still am, I think) the only girl I know who's petite enough to manage this feat, and somehow--don't ask me how--the thing actually managed to keep my boobs covered the whole time I was at the party. Good times, good times.

But even then, in all my fishnetted or bandannaed glory (and usually in my tipsy glory, too), I knew that the words hos, when you're referring to multiple hos and not just, like, me possessing something, doesn't contain a freakin' apostrophe. Sigh.
