The 12 Days of Christmas

My colleague gave to me:

Twelve apostrophes that possess

Eleven proper hyphens

Ten unsplit infinitives

Nine Oxford commas

Eight proofread pages

Seven corrected typos

Six unneeded words deleted

Five style books!

Four participles that don’t dangle

Three grammar rules

Two subject/verb agreements

And the proper use of “I” versus “me.”
