Oh, how sad is this? Jim from London e-mailed me with this very unfortunate ode to somebody's mom.
Where did this mom's kids go wrong? They used an apostrophe + s to form a plural word.
Quick rule: Never use an apostrophe to form a plural. An "s" will do. (Or in some cases, an "es.")
Correction: ONE OF THE BEST OF MOTHERS
And, while we're at it, why not just say she was the "very best mother," instead of the lame "one of the best of mothers"? She's dead, for crying out loud. Zheesh.
