Hi, Word Nerd here. You know, the type who cringes wildly every time she receives a pitch promising “A Great Story Idea For Mom’s Everywhere.” I’m also a little anal about the its/it’s issues on my children’s homework, so you can imagine how excited I am about this line of grammar police dishware.
The may/can plates from Grammar Rules are so perfect for kids, giving you the perfect opportunity to explain that “yes, everyone can have ice cream for breakfast but no, you may not.” (Or at least that’s the example I might use.)
They’re such fun gifts for teachers, or writers like me. And if the plates aren’t up your alley, then at least check out the coffee mugs. Like the adverb mug that reads along the back: Yesterday, I very slowly drank down my extremely hot venti caramel mocha nonfat latte with a shot of amaretto and real whipped cream.
I guess even grammarians aren’t above a dig at today’s insane coffee orders. Provided they’re ordered correctly. (That’s an adverb too.)
