Literally.

Please for the love of Disney, stop saying "literally" in every sentence! Especially when you use it incorrectly 99% of the time.

AHHH!!!

Thanks.

When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention

The OP literally made me smile. It did not literally make me laugh so hard that I was rolling the the floor. YMMV.

My 9th grade English teacher figuratively beat this image into our brains and would call on the offending writer in class and ask if that was what he or she meant to say whenever anybody used the word incorrectly in speech or in writing.

A few years ago I was talking with one of my classmates and we both remarked on how we always use literally correctly.
