Another Grammar Lesson

Already?!

Yes, because this one’s bugging the hell out of me. Addressing an increasingly common confusion between two homophones, this lesson deals with the difference between ‘a part’ and ‘apart’.

A lovesick teenager might use the phrase a part like this:

“I am, like, so tot’s head-over-heals for my bf. I am so glad he is, like, a part of my life.”

That same lovesick teenager might use the word apart like this:

“I, like, cannot believe he cheated on me with her. It is, like, totally tearing my life apart.”

Oh the difference a space makes.
