    Just one of my pet peeves that I need to rant about. Have been seeing it more and more in the threads so I wanted to address it. :rolleyes::cool:

    The proper use of wonder and wander..


    Wonder -
    1. to think or speculate curiously: to wonder about the origin of the solar system.
    2.
    to be filled with admiration, amazement, or awe; marvel : He wondered at her composure in such a crisis.
    3.
    to doubt: I wonder if she'll really get here.


    Wander -

    1. to ramble without a definite purpose or objective; roam, rove, or stray: to wander over the earth.
    2. to go aimlessly, indirectly, or casually; meander: The river wanders among the rocks.
    3.
    to extend in an irregular course or direction: Foothills wandered off to the south.
    4.
    to move, pass, or turn idly, as the hand or the eyes.
    5.
    (of the mind, thoughts, desires, etc.) to take one direction or another without conscious intent or control: His attention wandered as the speaker droned on.
    6.
    to stray from a path, place, companions, etc.: During the storm the ship wandered from its course.
    7.
    to deviate in conduct, belief, etc.; err; go astray: Let me not wander from Thy Commandments.
    8. to think or speak confusedly or incoherently.

    Do you ever find yourself watching Star Wars and yelling at the screen every time Yoda speaks?

    It only happened twice! I would cut his tongue off but I don't think I could get close enough.
