Grammar geeks, unite!

apostrophes

It’s [not Its] probably a good day for me to confess that I grew up enjoying sentence diagrams in school. You guessed it, I wasn’t on the cheerleading team. But I guess I made a living as a wordsmith, so take that, jocks!

I am one of those spelling and grammar sticklers who HATES to see signs with mistakes, especially misplaced apostrophes and quotation marks. Does this drive anyone else crazy? I know it does. Sound off in the comments.

P.S.: I’m VERY SCARED to make a grammatical error in a post about Grammar Day. Be kind.
