you know what irks me? when people use the word that sounds like "peek" in writing, but can't spell it correctly. here:

peak: the top or tapering point [of a mountain, of a whipping cream cloud, a ship's stern, whatever], or SFU's student newspaper.

peek: to glance furtively or quickly.

pique: to provoke, or to cause a feeling of indignation.

now use them correctly!

thank you for being better at wording things than i am. if only more people would use you, or one of your kin.
