You know you're a writer when incorrect grammar starts to 'irk' you... Okay, there was this road that I drove down nearly every weekend to get from my town to my parents. As you can see from the picture, it's very country. It's nearly 50 km's (30 miles) of dirt road and winding bends, but there was this one sign that always annoyed me (and my brother). How could a sign annoy me you may ask. It was all due to the one missing apostrophe. Sam Hunts Creek... it sounds like Sam's hunting the creek, okay now I'm just being pedantic.
Yep, it was grammatically incorrect and every single time I drove past it all I ever wanted to do was to pull over and add that darn apostrophe. Well, my brother got his wish. On his final weekend in Australia he chose to yell at me to pull the car over and in a spur of the moment action, we actually added the apostrophe.
We actually weren't the first one's to think of doing this. Coming back the other way, the apostrophe had already been added. Yeah, I wish we had been the first to think of doing this, but now I can rest in peace knowing that I have corrected one more grammar
Have you done anything crazy that proves you're a writer? Do you get annoyed by the silliest of things? Tell me the craziest thing you have done.
