when 1 + 1 = 1

I may be revealing a bit of my word nerd tendencies here, but this article is pretty funny. Since it's gorgeous out and my 3 year-old entertains herself much better outdoors than inside, I'm catching up on blog reading (see previous post) while enjoying the fresh air. My neighbors probably think I'm kooky for laughing to myself, but anyone with a bit of interest in word funnies will enjoy this piece as well.

To pique your interest, let me give a brief overview:

Do you write "a miss" or "amiss?"

Would you choose "a float" or "afloat?"

Is it "intact" or "in tact?"

If you're even remotely curious about the correct way to write these words, check out "Two Words or One? Words You Might Be Misusing."
