Wednesday Grammar Lesson

to: preposition; begins prepositional phrase or an infinitive as in, "I'm going to the store", or "He helped to write the term paper."

too: adverb; in addition, also as in, "I'm going to the store too."; in excess as in, "Your music is too loud."

two: the spelled version of the number 2; the third number in a sequence with zero beginning and one coming next.

If I see one more person write, "I have to much to do today", I'm going to freak out. It's not hard people - most of us only write one language, let's try to at least have passable competency in it.

Thank you and we now return you to your regular programming.
