How did I not know about this before?! Maira illustrated my favorite reference guide, Strunk & White's Elements of Style -- a book which not only endorses the Oxford Comma but also gives me the possessive apostrophe I very much deserve, in a one-two punch.
I beg to differ, Maira, I think you come pretty close.
Family members and good friends, please note my birthday is the Sunday after Thanksgiving. I look forward to receiving my copy.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to put the finishing touches on my Maira alter.
