I know I'm being judgy

New Addition vs. New Edition

I rolled my eyes and sighed with judgement when I read some random's comment on MySpace. The random had just had a baby, and one of their friends commented:

"Congratulations on your new edition!"

Unless she was making a play on words related to Bobby Brown's group, which I doubted after looking at her page, she's just plain old dumb. Addition. Addition. Addition.

I still remember going over they're/their/there and sit/set and addition/edition and all the others in school - and they all seemed easy. Apparently not.
