they have lots of Hummers here, too

my dad and i were nearly to Houston last week, driving along I-10 west, when i noticed a bumper sticker on the back of a Dodge truck:

"Friend's don't let friend's drive Fords"

if it's one thing i can say for sure about the state of Texas after exactly one week: they do not know the appropriate use of the possessive it's. after that particular instance, i ran into the same grammatical mistake in several other places, including the IKEA in Houston (horrors, i know, they're supposed to Swedish).

welcome back to my brain, folks.

Well, does Swedish even use that possessive form? They're just victims of Texas. :p
