It's not peeked my interest

Or peaked

But piqued

'Piqued my interest'

This has been a [translated from] capsloc PSA


extravagantshoes

This is actually really useful thank you


ranetree

Additionally:

You are not 'phased'. You are 'fazed.'

If it has been a very long day, you are weary. If someone is acting in a way that makes you suspicious, you are 'wary'.

All in 'due' time, not 'do' time

'Per se' not 'per say'

Thank you


tassiekitty

Breathe - The verb form in present tense

Breath - The noun form


They are not interchangeable


Wander - To walk about aimlessly

Wonder - To think of in a dreamlike and/or wistful manner


They are not interchangeable (but one's mind can wander)


emmalackeru

Defiant - Resistant
Definite - Certain


melancholicmarionette

Wanton - Deliberate and unprovoked action (also an archaic term for a promiscuous woman)

Wonton - It's a dumpling that's all it is it's a fucking dumpling


rnatthewgraygublers

Bawl - To sob/cry

Ball - A fucking ball

You cannot "ball" your eyes out


soggywarmpockets

And for fuck's sake, it's not "sike"; it's "psych". As in "I psyched you out"; because you momentarily made someone believe something that wasn't true.

Thank you.

It's 'might as well'. 'Mind as well' does not make grammatical sense.


penbrydd

Sleight - Dexterity, artifice, craft (from 'sly')
Slight - Very little, frail, delicate

It's 'Sleight of hand'.

celynbrum

Discrete - Separate, distinct, parted

Discreet - Subtle, stealthy, diplomatic


ceruleancynic

And to continue the OP's theme

It's sneak peek

Not sneak peak

A sneak peak would be a mountain engaged in espionage

They are very large and would find this generally difficult

Thank

(Oh and one other thing

Bullion = Precious metal

Bouillon = Stock, from the French "bouiller," to boil)
