I forgot what I was going to write in this post because I spent so much time trying to figure out how to write the title of the post.
Which of the following are grammatically correct (if any):
a- Bye, Bye, Birthday Month!
b- Bye Bye, Birthday Month!
c- Bye Bye Birthday Month!
d- Bye-Bye, Birthday Month!
Mike voted for “c”. I told him he was wrong, decided to go with goodbye instead and then started wondering if it is supposed to be “good-bye”, “good bye”, or “goodbye”. At which point he threw his hands in the air and begged me to leave him alone. =)
On a similar note, there is a sign on my bus that makes me giggle:
“Starting 8/21/06 the #3 bus will leave downtown at 45 minutes to the hour and 15 minutes after the hour.”
Again, my husband disagrees with me. If you ask me, 45 minutes TO the hour is the same as 15 minutes AFTER the hour. What do you think, internets?
