The french call them "Thongs" but as they don't pronounce the H, it sounds like "Tongs".. When Florent first said to me he was going to put on his "Tongs" I near wet myself laughing.. Although having said that, the inbetweeney toe bits do look like the back of Thong underwear, the Y shape and all..

That's what flip flops were called back when I was a kid.....thongs. I don't think they had those underwear called thongs yet. But yeah...they're both of the same idea, like Gustav says. Only one goes on yo feet and one goes on da heat.

OH! Cat's. Dog's. Cat's and dog's what? "'s" indicates belonging or contraction. Plural (dogs, cats) does not have an apostrophe. Bugs the crap out of me xD

I know what you mean. When I write Chi's...short for Chihuahua, I am conflicted. I know that the apostophe means ownership and I'm not saying the Chi's toy. I'm trying to make it plural, but not ownership, (which in that case would be Chis'.) However, to write simply Chis looks like and sounds like something else, not short for Chihuahuas. LOL. He-e-e-e-e-lp. What should I do when I want to say, "The Chis are having a good day." ???LOL. Maybe I should just write out the whole long name. Chihuahua. Or Chulita and Jose`.

Okay, Chis it is. Sounds so funny when pronounced how it looks.

I think we'll still know what you mean if you say Chis, given the context

Xena put her sword on the table.

Xena is the subject; "put" is the verb; the sword is the direct object; the table is the indirect object.
Ummm, no. In the example "xena put her sword on the table", "table" is the object of the preposition "on", not an indirect object. An indirect object usually preceeds the object of a sentence, such as "Xena gave me the sword". "Sword" is the direct object. "me" is the indirect object".


My pet peeve? People correcting others' grammar incorrectly
