It was basically, “Why is it Mother’s Day and not Mothers’ Day? Card companies are stupid! Misplaced rage! This is why I am correct! Rally around me in support!”
Then I looked it up on the internets and found out the woman who pretty much made up Mother’s Day insisted on that punctuation to honor the efforts of each individual mother.
Fine, inventor of the holiday. Use your perfectly reasonable justifications over 100 years ago, thus ruining today’s blog post. It’s like she had no idea I’d commit to some arbitrary 14-day posting goal that would drive straight through Mother’s Day weekend, during which I would spend literally tens of minutes throughout my day patting myself on the back for my witty attack on the greeting card companies.
Well played, holiday inventor. Well played.
