Why are Breyer's cheeks turning red? Oh, because he is mortified at the grammatical atrocity that is spewing out of his mouth! (This from the latest episode of Kyle's B&B, #201). And it's not him who should be embarrassed... it's me!
Just to set the record straight, yes, I know he should be saying "parents" (plural), instead of "parent's" (possessive).
Sadly, it took e-mail from readers of the strip to notify me of my error! I still cannot believe I let this one slip by.
In my defense, (if there is any), I did go back and check my original notebook script and, thankfully, I wrote it correctly when I was originally composing the script for this episode. So, it was an error in transcription, (still no excuse, but it does make me feel a little better!). I can assure you, when the next Kyle's B&B book is published with this episode in it, it will be fixed!
Thanks to everyone who took the time to point this out to me. As someone who is a child of two schoolteachers, and who also minored in English in college, I do take this seriously, (almost as seriously as Brad's puca shells. Maybe even more so!).
