This pet is not an animal

Monday, January 21, 2013

- Jeremy is working on a pet project to preserve historic homes in his city.
- My pet peeve (annoyance; irritation) is receiving sales phone calls at home.
- Ron has a pet theory that sun spots cause global warming.

Sometimes we use the adjective pet to describe something that we feel strongly about or that we devote special attention to.

What is your pet peeve?
