what the ess?

Nat: Okay: "heart's content": ess apostrophe, apostrophe ess, no apostrophe?

My Boss: Apostrophe ess.

Nat: But it's used as a plural--"their hearts--no apostrophe--content"--so ess apostrophe, right?

My Boss: Are they using "their" instead of "his" or "hers"?

Nat: "Their" as in "the trainer's and the dog's."

My Boss: Yeah, then go with ess apostrophe.
