Dr. Kathy Koch, one of my clients :), posted a great blog post about strong willed children titled Speaking With Moms of Strong-Willed Children during Hearts At Home Conference. The problem is that “Moms” originally had a miscreant apostrophe in it and read “Mom’s.” Since I am the one that posted it for her (she of course wrote the article I just post it for her as a part of what I help out with) she emailed me to correct the mistake in the title.
So being a good co-worker I felt it necessary to explain the true story behind the-evil-out-of-the-blue appearing apostrophe. I emailed Kathy:
You see …
There was once an evil apostrophe that suffered from narcissistic personality disorder. It was an ugly little apostrophe. It said to it’s friend (it’s has a misapplied apostrophe in it on purpose) … it said to it’s friend, “I am going to stalk Kathy Koch’s blog and insert myself on a post that is spreading wildly across Facebook. Then shalt I, the APOSTROPHE, gain the stature I so deserve!”
And so began the saga of the Moms becoming Mom’s.
But NONE to worry my dear Kathy! I chased the apostrophe down, captured it and fed it to the exclamation mark!
In other words, the correction has been made…
She loved the explanation and agreed that the dastardly deeds of the evil rogue apostrophe should be exposed.
Now… you know.
