Cop a Comma
Oh yes, you know it. The grammar police are hot on the beat. Dressing like an actual cop is not a good idea unless you’re heading to a Halloween party. So try this instead.

Say, “It was mine for the moment,” to the frazzled and possibly frightened person before flying off into the night like a possessive pronoun on the prowl.
