Ah, Grammar

Dang. Guess we have to figure this out.

Fishies is plural, which makes the singular Fishy, oui?

And not Fishie, as I was writing. Sigh.

I'm also noticing the banner is incorrect grammar as well, using Fishies as the singular hello from a loved one.

Pier One hello

Got a Fishie from Mom last Saturday. I was at Pier One picking up a bed frame I had on hold under my name, Elisabeth.

The older British woman looked me dead in the eye and said, "Barbara? It's on hold for Barbara?"

I blinked and said, "No, Elisabeth."

She laughed and said "I don't know why I have Barbara in my head."

Apparently because she really had Barbara in her head.

Thanks for the Fishie, Mom.
