Literally vs. Figuratively

I like my coworkers a lot, particularly the ones in my department. One of my closest friends in the department had her birthday this week, so I sent her a birthday card that I knew would make her laugh–on the front it said “The misuse of ‘literally’ drives me figuratively insane,’ and inside it basically said ‘let it all go, and have a relaxing birthday!’ I expect she’ll laugh because it’s such a ‘me’ card–I’m well known for being a bit of a grammar nerd around here.
