Grammar Giggle – Forty’s and 70s

My brother sent me this one. I loved this drive in theater and spent many a date night there . . . but enough about that. There were so many errors in these two sentences. Here are my edits to it:

  • “Opened” should not be capitalized. There is a comma right ahead of it, so I’m assuming it is a continuation of the same sentence and part of a series.
  • Naming a decade is done as “the 1940s,” “the forties,” or the “the ’40s.”
  • “It’s” means “it is.”
  • “Til” I’m assuming is some kind of abbreviation for “until,” although it isn’t correct unless it begins with an apostrophe indicating that “un” is missing–’til.
