Here’s a conversation my husband (gosh that’s fun to say!) and I had this morning.
The difference between figuratively and literally. This is both my pet peeve, and something I find hilariously funny. Literally, I laugh out loud. It’s figuratively the funniest thing in the world.
“I literally feel like a truck hit me.”
…..Dear Lord, I hope not! How are you talking? Why aren’t you in a hospital? ….Do you mean figuratively?
If I see literally misused one more time, I will go figuratively insane!
What do you think, readers? Are you as bothered by this as I am? Does it make you figuratively want to tear your hair out? What are your grammar peeves, or grammar jokes?
