rubber meets the road.
The big makeup rage is neutrals.
When I scanned the countryside this morning I thought...
oh look at all the neutrals...
(thank you katie for keeping me current)
Last night, Katie yelled to me from the kitchen where she was doing her homework,
"What is the difference between effect and affect?"
I said, "mummblebumblemumblebumble".
And then I said, "I will look it up because in my whole life I am sure I have never used the word 'affect'. I have heard the word but have never typed it before."
This means either I have used 'effect' incorrectly all my life OR I don't talk like that.....you know...using words like affect.
I found the answer in my trusty Warriner's English Grammar and Composition. (classic)
I'm won't type the answer out...if you are at all curious follow the link;
Well. After reading that I'm sure I have used 'affect' incorrectly.
But I'm not sure anyone noticed.
And don't make me try to write a sentence using the word.
(How about I challange YOU to caption the above picture using effect or affect in the title.)
OY. Rubber meets the road and all that.
Lots of love,
Your local late bloomer
