ok, let me preface this by saying that idon't even pretend to be a grammar whiz. idont even capitalize my i's or put spaces between them and other words. but there are a couple things that mainly my friend caleb perkins does that are grammatically incorrect that bug me; and so many other people make these same mistakes that idecided to write a blog about it. ps this is danny.
1) you're = your...psych! it doesn't. you're is a conjunction (shout out to school house rock!) for 'you' and 'are' and it does not imply possession of something.
2) to = too...psych again! it doesn't. idon't even know where to start with this one. ex: a friend says he is attending a certain party and you say: we are going TO the party TOO. notice the difference? ex: my wife says she loves me even after imake this ridiculous blog post, and i say: ilove you TOO. iguess icould have said ilove you TOO much to say, but icouldn't have said ilove you TO much to express.
3) are = our...you get the point!
4) its = it's...nope! this one doesn't follow the norm. "it's" does NOT show possession and is just a conjunction of "it" and "is." "its" shows possession. listen to my first example: it's too late to go play ticket to ride (notice i'm saying IT IS too late...). if you're talking about your dog's bone you couldn't say: where is it's bone? (you are really saying where is IT IS bone?) weird huh? "where is its bone?" is the correct answer.
this blog is to tell caleb istill love him and we still want to be invited to ticket to ride night! the blog-off has begun a long time ago my friend, where is your response?
and here are a few pics just to keep jenny entertained since she doesn't read my posts because they are too long, sorry jenny.
