Glitch #129 was boring, and also about a type of error mentioned many, many times (commas with direct address), so I decided to skip it and go on to this one.
Once more, with feeling…
Everyday and every day do not mean the same thing! Everyday is an adjective; it can only modify nouns or other adjectives. On the other hand, every day is an adverbial phrase (is this why some writers are now seemingly afraid to use it at all?) telling when something occurs.
There needs to be a comma after top, and as (a typo, probably) should be has. The comma after top is needed because you could remove the entire bit between those commas and still have a complete sentence that makes sense: Every day you walk down the same street on your way to work.
The correct possessive for it is its, not it’s.
Every day you walk down the same street, past the church with the statues adorning the top, on your way to work. Today one of the statues seems different: it has a smirk on its face.
You don’t have to use a colon (in this usage, indicating that amplification/explanation follows) after different, but you shouldn’t use an ellipsis. A period would be the simplest option, I suppose, but a semicolon would probably work better because of how closely the two parts are linked. (Rarely will you see a sentence where you could use either a colon or a semicolon. Don’t let this example fool you into thinking the two are truly interchangeable.)
