#54: You Don’t Like Ampersands? (Take 2)

DDD #54 You Don't Like Ampersands?

On this episode:
Morgan and Linda don’t possess the brainpower required of daughters-in-law when they communicate with their in-laws. Terminology matters when it comes to healthcare plans, but mostly we debate if “healthcare” should be one word or two. Hot tip: Pick up five-year-old Edith Fuller for your fantasy spelling bee team. And finally, we delve into capitalization, quotation marks and italics when it comes to titles. Oh, and the reason Morgan isn’t a ballerina today? Her back brace.
