Except and Accept

Except and Accept :

If you offer me Godiva chocolates I will gladly accept them—except for the candied violet ones.

Just remember that the “X” in “except” excludes things—they tend to stand out, be different. In contrast, just look at those two cozy “C’s” snuggling up together. Very accepting.

And be careful; when typing “except” it often comes out “expect.”
