Might vs Mite.

A quick grammar lesson!

Might” is strength/ability or the expression of a possibility. Such as

1) The monster used all of his might to lift the house and throw it into the ocean.

In this example, might expresses how strong the monster is. Strong enough to lift a house.

OR

2) I might eat pizza for lunch tomorrow.

Example two hasn’t happened yet. It could happen, but it’s also possible it won’t happen. And so we use “might.”

While a “Mite” looks like this:

Similar to “eats shoots and leaves” vs “eats, shoots, and leaves,” confusing might with mite can leave you saying one thing when you mean another. So be careful out there!
