SHELLY'S PET PEEVE

I DON'T KNOW WHY THIS BOTHERS ME BUT IT TOTALLY DOES.
IF A PERSON IS FEELING LIKE THEY ARE GOING TO PUKE AND THEY SAY THEY ARE "NAUSEOUS" I CHUCKLE A LITTLE INSIDE AND THEN HAVE TO BITE MY TONGUE
SO AS NOT TO GO INTO A GRAMMER LESSON.
I ONLY BITE MY TONGUE BECAUSE I AM WELL AWARE THAT WHEN I WRITE THERE ARE MORE RUN-ON SENTENCES THAN MOST PEOPLE CAN BEAR. LOL
WE ALL HAVE OUR ISSUES...

A LESSON IN
NAUSEOUS VS NAUSEATED

Nauseous:
Causing nausea; sickening


Nauseated:
To be feeling, or having been caused to feel nausea.


The next time you are tempted to say "I feel nauseous", understand that you are saying
"I feel like I make other people sick" or "I feel nauseating."

end of lesson.

Thanks for the clarification.

Too funny. When one says that, I forget all about grammar and move into 'get out of the way' mode. I believe one of my boys said it better...."she's gonna blow...." Need I say more?

Oh I'm telling you what. I have re-read some of my past posts from like a year or so ago and actually edited them! LOL

I'm a fly by the seat of my pants writer...and that does not make for great spelling, grammer or sentence structure. I'm sooo bad! LOL

I just like the nauseous thing. I used to say it then someone agreed with me and I didn't get the joke!! LOL
