"She [Anna Jarvis, founder of Mother's Day] was specific about the location of the apostrophe; it was to be a singular possessive, for each family to honour their mother, not a plural possessive commemorating all mothers in the world."
i appreciate people like anna jarvis, not for this "celebrating mothers" crap (although i am down with that), but because she not only thought about possessive apostrophe placement but also formed a strong opinion on it. i miss grammar nerds.
tomorrow's mother's day in thailand, hence my mother's day-related post in the middle of august. right now the students are in a big assembly and a bunch of them brought their moms. it looks like a semi-fancy affair. ooh la la.
love and miss you, momma :)
