Peek! Peek! Peek! Peek! Peek!
February 15, 2010 Bad Stuff
AAAAAAaaaarrrggghhh! For the last damn time, internet, there is a difference between “peak” and “peek!” Yes, I know they both pass the Microsoft Word spell checker, but that doesn’t mean they’re interchangeable!
Do you see the difference? A “peak” is the top; the summit; the pinnacle.
To “peek” is to take a quick look. Do you see how stupid it makes you look when you have a “sneak peak” as the headline for your super-duper article where you are taking a look at something?
Stop writing “take a peak,” “sneak peak” and “early peak” when you clearly mean “peek.”
Just stop it.
I can’t stand it anymore.
