A language peeve from a new friend and fellow blogger Only Half Nuts -
I think my biggest peeve is people interchanging loose and lose. (As in, I want to loose weight instead of lose weight...or loosing your mind instead of losing it...which is what happens to me when I read this mistake:)
This is purely a spelling error and it is an annoying one indeed.
Here is one way to help people remember the proper spelling of each word:
In order to lose weight, you need to lose an "o" from the word "loose." And if your clothing is too loose it is probably because the additional "o" in the word "loose" adds more space between the "l" and the "s" in the word "lose."
