|Congratulations once more to Pete for the last challenge. Here we go again on another word adventure. Of course,I remind you...please to keep it clean and gentle for this old "purist". This week I have chosen words which are frequently used incorrectly. Be prepared...if you do not use them in the right way I will point it out but I do not wield a big stick. Here are three similar words...COULD, SHOULD and WOULD. The other two words for the exercise are HAVE and OF. When you write SHOULD, COULD or WOULD and follow it with "OF", instead of the "HAVE" which is correct, imagine somebody dragging fingernails across a chalk board and that will be my reaction. Those combinations are TABOO! So...COULD HAVE, SHOULD HAVE and WOULD HAVE not the other thing, hey? Of course there are other possibilities you COULD use in which you WOULD not necessarily go down that track...see? OK. Now write me that 10 line poem using those 5 words. Enjoy. Love & blessings...
