Good grammar is sexy

This tote made me laugh. Don't you agree?!

Here are a few things I've learned over the years:
* Farther vs. further. Farther = physical distance. Further = abstract lengths. ("We need to drive farther down the road." "Let’s discuss this further tonight.")
* Everyday vs. every day. "I go to the park every day." "These shoes are great for everyday wear."
* Literally. Most things aren't actually literally true. "I was literally dying with laughter." Probably not.
