Is no place sacred?

Filed under: At home with MRP,Grammar goddess,Pet peeves — mighty red pen @ 12:35 am

This is in MRP’s own home. It was put there by the previous owners, who evidently thought quite highly of themselves, if not their grammatical ability.

It taunts me daily.




  1. What’s stopping you from covering it up with a bit of primer or paint?

    I like the new look of the blog.

  2. I knew *you* would ask that, Moley.

    It’s either:

    a. sheer martyrdom.
    b. teachable moment for the children.
    c. plain old laziness.

    You like? Thanks!

  7. ihaveallyourbabystuff is right. Cool people don’t have to write they’re cool on walls. Coolness radiates from within. Ipso facto they are lame.

  8. Nice use of “ipso facto.” Everyone is impressed.

  9. Allowing children to be exposed to bad grammar?
