Grammar Lesson Monday: Loose and Lose

Welcome to Grammar Lesson Monday!
This continuous series will address many common grammar mistakes made in the media and that I've seen more than once.  I strive to make the world a better place with good grammar.

Today, we will learn about when to use loose and lose.

Loose is an adjective and means something is too baggy.
I lost weight and now my pants are loose.

Lose is a verb and means that you are going to miss something.  Past tense: lost.
Since my pants are loose, I'd better put on a belt so I don't lose them.

That's it for today.  Celebrate good grammar!
