Why yes, I *am* damn picky.

So, as I mentioned on Friday, I went shopping.

You'd think that with a 30% off coupon, I'd have been able to find something I wanted at Juicy.

Yeah. Not so much. There was this one shirt I liked, though. I had it in my hand and was going to buy it. It was hot pink with pretty silver writing on it. It was cute. It was my size. But then I took a closer look...


...and I found that, horror of horrors, it had an apostrophe error on it.

I put that shirt down soooo quickly. You'd have laughed if you saw me. I suppose I'm afraid of screwy apostrophe usage being contagious. And for god's sake, the Grammarphile cannot run around with an apostrophe error emblazoned across her chest. No freakin' way!

I suppose this is one way to cure my shopaholicness (shopaholism?): Make all the cute clothing have apostrophe errors on it, and then no matter how cute the clothes are, I won't buy 'em...

*chuckles* Good thing you caught that for you surely know that if you took a picture of you wearing that item, someone HERE would have caught it!

@ LadyStyx: Damn right they would have Red Penned me for such a transgression...and rightfully so! ;)

@ Bridgete: It's a shame, too...that was a really cute shirt! But not a cute shirt for Grammarphile types. :(

Love it! It reminds me of the error that your yahoo avatar (that little cartoon character)can sport, complete with unnecessary comma: http://terriblywrite.wordpress.com/2009/11/18/ufos-now-appearing-on-your-avatar/
