LOOSE vs LOSE

Oh my goodness, look at the time! It's April, and my last post is dated September. That's when I took my Mom to the doctor to discuss having esophageal dilatation. She had it done, but is having problems again, so we went to the doctor today to discuss having it done again.

Take a moment to ponder possible connections between my mother having esophageal dilatation and me posting on a writing blog. Comment if you dare.

TODAY, I am going to start something I like to call "Spelling Errors That Drive Me Crazy!"

For example -- confusing the word lose with the word loose. The following is my attempt to clarify the difference, while being funny to help you remember.
"Turn me loose, you loser!" she cried. "How dare you call me a loose cannon? That chair leg was already loose, so lose the attitude before I lose my temper and you lose a few teeth!"
Familiar Sayings That Might Help:
  • Loose Lips Sink Ships
  • a loose interpretation
  • You Snooze, You Lose
  • Use It or Lose It

There. Got it? Super!
