On facebook, pretty much every one recognizes my daughter Francesca as Gerty the Grammarian. She will not let an errant apostrophe go untrounced. Sometimes our communications are wordless, and yet the feeling of being judged is still present. Recently I sent her this photo just for fun. I titled it “Fergus Monsoon” for a variety of reasons.
Always trying to do me one better, this was her reply:
She didn’t grace it with a title.
This is not Gerty the Grammarian.
