HUMP DAY GRAMMAR for September 30, 2009

This picture isn't exactly Hump Day-related--it's not about sex.

But it is about ass. So it kinda counts.

PETER, who took this screenshot, says: Isn't Blue Mountain one the biggest players, if not the biggest, in the e-card business? I can think of many businesses in which spelling isn't important, but e-cards isn't one of them.



See? When you misspell easy words like occasions, you look like an ass. And you should be embarrassed. And you should not put any ass into words when it doesn't really belong there.

Thanks, PETER, for finding this error! And to all my Red Pen readers--a happy Hump Day to you!

Tsk. I like Blue Mountain, too. Now I feel like I need to proofread the cards before I send them, so I don't look like an ass. ;)

Good thinking, Bridgete! :) You wouldn't want to embarrass yourself by sending out a card that contains errors... :)

That's the word that always gets me. Don't we all have that one word that gets us every time? Tell me it isn't just me.

"Ass" doesn't bother me too much, usually. I'm not sure yet what that one word is that bothers me the mot, actually. I think it changes with my moods... :)

April said...

Hah. I meant with the spelling. Occasionally is the word that always trips me up.

Guess I should have made my comment more clear. I'm so not bothered by "ass". =)
