The Quilt Pattern Magazine. Yes! It's true! We're the new Copy Editor on the block.
Now, doesn't this sound like the perfect fit for Grandma Coco? She just loves to nitpick the finer points of spelling and grammar. She could be your worst nightmare if Cheryl didn't rein her in from time to time......in spite of the fact, that GC just spelled it "reign" and Cheryl had to google to correct her. That's one of the problems with setting yourself up as an expert. Every now and then, you're going to mess up and everybody's going to see you're human. Sigh. And in Grandma Coco's case ... extremely, spectacularly (and often) human.
You see, EVERYBODY makes a mistake now and then and really, as long as the meaning is still clear, what's the harm? Language is how we communicate. Obviously. Sometimes, we need to be careful in order to communicate clearly. Sometimes, we say something inadvertent with our grammar/spelling errors. We've been doing a lot of driving recently on the same stretch of highway and we pass a new roadside stand that offers "French fries and ice creme." Not ice cream. It's a spelling mistake, right? A simple spelling mistake. And yet, we can't help wondering if attention to correct spelling and attention to food handling safety, say, might be related. It just makes us wonder. But, hey, you all know by now Grandma Coco's not the most easy-going gal. She's a hypochondriac with (self-diagnosed) Generalized Anxiety Disorder who worries about waiters spitting in her food at the best of times. So it might just be us.
And that other thing we're sure of? ... There will be no spitting in the food at The Quilt Pattern Magazine.
