A Copyeditor's Daughter Celebrates National Grammar Day
The Girl is in high school, and she's taking Latin.
"Hey, Mom," she said. "Guess how I celebrated National Grammar Day?"
Latin grammar, I guessed. (When I was making Grammar Flags for the Grammar Cupcakes, she kept suggesting stuff like the ablative case.)
Yes, she said. "And I deconstructed Joshua's article." It needed help, she said: "His grammar is atrocious." So she fixed it for him.
She's also on the newspaper staff, and she edited his column!
Aw, it's enough to make a parent proud.
