You learn something new everyday…

I just found out about this:

“You have piqued my interest,” not “you have peaked my interest” or “you have peeked my interest.”

The word “pique” (pronounced like “peek”) means “to excite or arouse.” “You have piqued my interest” means “you have aroused my interest”–that is, I wasn’t interested before, but now I am.

I always use ‘peaked’ instead of ‘piqued’ Hehe 🙂
