Okay, I'll bite. What is the correct usage for "pedantically"
anyways? It's just not one of those words used every day, and I'm too
lazy to go dig up my dictionary. As to apostrophes... there's one of my
pet peeves! Especially "it's/its" :P

bit of music, but won't walk 5 feet to get her dictionary)
