Curious George: I'm Loosing My Mind! Is it just me or is "loose" quickly replacing "lose" as the preferred spelling of the verb meaning "to be deprived of, or to cease to have or retain (something)"?
Look, I know it's the internet and no one can spell anything at all, but it's starting to bleed into real life! Today, my boss left me a note that says "Please inform students if they loose the keys..." It didn't used to be like this, did it? This is a terrible post, but tracicle's not around and none of you can stop me. In fact, I declare this thread to be the official "bitch about bad grammar and spelling thread." Oh, and please feel free to point out the mistakes that I have undoubtedly made in typing this.
firsttime yer GramMa's posted whilst drunk. And I don't advise doing it.
