Venting re: grammar

| No Comments

Proof-read one too many user comments today. Mind if I vent just a bit?

It's "clique", not "click", when you don't know the other performers as well as they seem to know each other. Also, the world is not high school. Feel free to sit at the popular table if you want.

"Chill" is a verb, or a noun. Speaking of high school, have you seen Mean Girls? Remember when that girl kept describing things as "fetch"? That's how "chill", as an adjective, will sound in about six months.

And please, let's all re-read Bob's Quick Guide to the Apostrophe.
