Jays home work was to study and learn the difference between a bunch of homonyms/homophones. Words such as: pear and pair, two and too, break and brake.
He actually did a grate job with them. I mean great job 🙂 . I am so glad because one of my biggest pet peeves is seeing people use the wrong your or their. I seriously cannot get passed the error to sea what ewe are actually trying to convey. Any meme with incorrect grammar or misspelled words sends chills up my spine and I wood never share it no matter how much I may relate to what its saying. I seriously have to stop myself from correcting peoples misuse of affect and effect. I mean, hello, it completely changes the meaning of the sentence if you say you are hosting a meat and greet vs a meet and greet. If you say meat and greet, trust me, I’m coming there with fork or stake in hand ready for a steak.
Anyway, back to Jay and his words that he was studying.
When we got to no and know, he explained it by saying:
“Like, I ask if I can have a piece of candy and you say no. I already know the answer.”
When Shaunie asked him to explain the difference between than and then he said he didn’t know how to explain than. I decided to help him out so I said:
“Jay would rather have pizza than chick fil a.”
He started laughing and said:
“No that’s not right. You mean I would rather have pizza THEN chick fila a.”
I think he’s gonna do just fine on his test.
