1. Yes, I know. I watch the Bachelor.
2. I really like Brad, the current Bachelor. He is one of my favorites in quite a while. (See #1 above) Brad seems respectful, and like he genuinely does his best to act with integrity. (See #3 below)
3. I realize The Bachelor is a television show that is probably 91% make-believe. And those producers--they do a great job. Because I really like Brad. (See #2 above)
What is an adverb anyway? And why does Brad love them so much…I mean SO MUCH?
An adverb is a part of speech. It is any word that modifies any part of speech or other verbs other than a noun. Adverbs typically answer questions such as how?, in what way?, when?, where?, and to what extent? (from Wikipedia)
Why Brad is our Adverbs Bachelor Spokesperson. (Or, ABS) Everyone uses adverbs. TRULY, they do. But, I have noticed all season how much Brad loves his adverbs...dearly! Please understand this is all in good fun. I find it quite refreshing that Brad uses his adverbs so well. But, let's just see HOW WELL he uses them! I have created a little scorecard, to use as you watch. Oh, how I would love it if you'd leave a comment with Brad's "ABS score" once you've watched! You know--that would be AMAZING...like, more than you know!!
