I was sitting with a kid yesterday while she did her homework and I noticed a piece of paper in her binder that showed a picture of a panda under the caption “PANDA’S ARE AWESOME!!!!”

“Did you make this?” I asked, picking it up to study it.

“Yeah,” she said.

I took her pencil away from her and sternly crossed out the apostrophe in PANDA’S. “No apostrophe,” I told her. She half-smiled at me and I frowned back at her. “This is serious stuff,” I said. “I mean it. This does not take an apostrophe.”

“Ohhhh…kay…” she said, gathering her stuff to leave.

“Pandas are awesome, though,” I called after her. “You were correct about that.”

I’m not sure, but I suspect I won’t be asked to help her with her homework again.
