|The bread's what? And which bread? And most importantly: whyyyyyy?|
Look. I like What's Cookin' meal mixes. I really do. Cody's mom had several samples a while ago, and she gave us a mix for enchilada soup and Cody made it and we ate it and we were happy.
So when I saw they had a booth at Holiday House a while ago, my friends and I darted over to check out their mixes for dips, soups, desserts, and any other good thing you might want.
And I have to say, I was happy!
Until I saw this awful apostrophe error.
Then I got a very opinionated look on my face (or so I was told), said some words, and took this picture in disgust.
I get that the folks at What's Cookin' probably enjoy using apostrophes. I can think of few things more folksy.
But geez Louise, y'all.
See? That's an appropriate use of an apostrophe.
Apostrophes are used to show a contraction between words, or to show possession. Also, for reasons I don't understand, they can be used signal dropped "g"s and your down-homeness.
Here is more information than you ever wanted on the apostrophe. Just in case you do want it.
Full disclosure: I bought some of the mixes and will be giving them out as Christmas presents. BUT nothing from the "Bread's" shelf. I have my standards and I cannot compromise them for something as trivial as the seasonal holidays or your happiness.
