It’s my birthday too, Catmom! Happy birthday!
Thanks! My comment was from a few years back—they must not have had one then. :)
Professional writer and erstwhile copy editor here, chiming in to agree with those who’ve pointed out that “proper grammar” does not apply to dialog (unless speaking “correctly” is a quirk of the character)! Part of what makes these characters so believable is the natural way they speak. :)
As a gardener, I should probably mention that while concern about poinsettias is overblown (they likely aren’t toxic after all), NEVER EVER EVER bring a lily, especially an Easter lily, into your home. A cat might be very “good” around plants—never nibbling a leaf—but still be killed by the grains of pollen that drop off the anthers if they happen to lick it off their fur. A tiny amount can cause organ failure. Just don’t risk it.
No! Oh, that’s terrible.
Oh, I’m so, so sorry.
I was just thinking that might be what I do. I’ll leave the 2019 BCN calendar on the wall (my kitchen would just not be the same without the joy and color it brings) and stick 2020 blank calendar pages over the months.
But don’t wear flannel PJs with flannel sheets unless you want lighting storms under the covers.
I feel so bad that she’s stressing about this. Sure, I’d love another BCN calendar but not if it means Georgia being exhausted.
