Hi kids today’s post is brought to you by the word mean. Sometimes when I’m writing I wonder if I’m using mean correctly. Well here’s the skinny on mean.

  • Mean – As a Verb. To have in mind as one’s purpose or intention; intend: I meant to compliment you on your work.
  • Mean – As an Adjective. Offensive, selfish, or unaccommodating; nasty; malicious: a mean remark; He gets mean when he doesn’t get his way.
  • Mean – As a noun. Usually, means. (used with a singular or plural verb) an agency, instrument, or method used to attain an end: The telephone is a means of communication. There are several means of solving the problem.

Also I’ve added a New Word Monday Word; Au Contraire – Which means on the contrary in French or English. Just away of spicing things up a bit.

Also there is an unanswered Bonus Question floating around in a previous post. The first person to answer it correctly gets a spot on my blogroll. Now there’s some easy Link Love.
