- Two heads are better than one when it comes to editing a paper.
- There are too many rules in the English language.
- I try to remember all the rules but I get so confused.
Now, on to the more confusing and sometimes dreaded to and too. You have to remember to add that extra o to to, when you mean to show there is more of something; when you can substitute also, for too in the sentence. See how easy that is to remember? An extra o in to means extra of whatever it is you are talking about (too cute, huh?).
The word to is a word we all use a lot in normal everyday speech. We can go to the store; send something to someone; happen to overhead something. To is a sweet little two letter word that gives too much of itself not to be appreciated for the wonderful little preposition that it is. We must respect the to and not mix it up with its homonymic counterparts, two and too. It is the least we can do for all the sweet to does for us.
That is it my friends. This lesson was very short and succinct. You can get back to the April Fools prank or two you were planning to play on some unsuspecting loved one. I am sure you think you are way too busy to stop and think about these kinds of things, but it takes less than two seconds to think before you accidentally type the wrong word and totally change the meaning of your sentences.
Back to your regularly scheduled Sunday afternoon programming.
