Or Betsy as a phrase. 😉
Or maybe they’re not convinced that Betsy is who she says she is.
heh, I love the misuse of quotation marks. My favourite is the “always fresh” sign at our local falafel joint 😉
My all-time favorite (which you will particularly appreciate) is a bumper sticker I once saw that said In “God” We Trust.
I’ve been torturing myself recently by reading http://quotation-marks.blogspot.com/. Sort of like watching a car wreck or State of the Union Address – painful, but I can’t look away.
All these years, I thought I really was Betsy. Now I’m beginning to question my very identity.
or maybe the essence of Betsy and would that include essence of Eliza as well?
from someone who is like Michelle but not quite
Sweet! I’m a big fan of the inappropriately used quotation mark. Just posted this “healthy” snack photo from my trip to canada this summer: http://www.flickr.com/photos/peterjbromberg/1606508266/
For some reason, I notice in our local real estate guide every realtor has a nickname in quotes. Jane “Betsy” Collins or Robert “Jim” Bannister. Is that a Jersey thing or a Realtor thing? Anyway, thanks for the laugh 🙂
