You never know where life will take you. For example, some friends and I joined a bowling league last night. I never really envisioned a bowling league would be part of my life. A book club, maybe. A ceramics class, perhaps. But never a bowling league.
I did learn a lot about myself, though. Well, I guess learn is the wrong word. I confirmed something about myself that I’ve always suspected: I am a terrible bowler. I consistently got the lowest score. I threw the ball the wrong way (and scared the shit out of this poor guy, which was actually pretty funny). And on my last game, when I had 97 points at the end of the ninth frame, I exclaimed in excitement, “I’m actually going to break 100,” and then I bowled two gutter balls.
When I am feeling down on myself for my lack of prowess, my favorite thing to do is bring attention to others’ shortcomings. And who better to pick on than an organization that dedicates itself to helping the youth?
I saw this sign a Starbucks today advertising the Boys and Girls Club’s tutoring program:
It says they have tutoring everyday. What they actually meant was that they have tutoring every day.
(Maybe don't enroll in the English tutoring.)
We use everyday when we mean daily or commonplace.
Example: This hot pink bowling ball with fluorescent green flames is my everyday bowling ball.
We use every day when we mean each day.
Example: I am going to practice bowling every day.
(At least until I throw the ball the right way 65% of the time.)
