I knew most of them but look like I've been using #1 & #9 incorrectly. I guess you're never too old to brush up on this stuff!

It should be deep seeded though. That's just a better analogy.

Oh yes, definitely ! But a few I was saying right. So I'm glad. Jeje.

I use 4 &7 correctly...

A lot of these were really obvious

This is awesome, thank you!

I needed these! Thank you!

Let's just be thankful other people have the good heart to share these things. Anyway,it is up to us if we will assimilate it or not. Why don't we just add something helpful instead of criticizing. Destructive criticism doesn't help!
