probably what i've even something your grandma said All right

00:21

And here potential answers Yeah it's Not like that Okay

00:25

well so somebody loves somebody else to pieces Maybe because

00:29

they bought them candy at the movie theater Yeah we

00:31

know that's enough to change our opinion on just about

00:33

anyone Yeah it doesn't take much So what is this

00:36

sentence anyway Is it be a definition A definition of

00:40

what the word love isn't being defined nor is the

00:43

word teases There are no parts of speech or pronunciation

00:46

keys inside either So pretty safe to rule this one

00:49

out is it D a phrase that changes awards meaning

00:53

well know the feeling of love we're talking about sounds

00:56

like you know regular old vanilla love it's the same

00:59

emotion we've used to describe our feelings about junior mints

It was good The word pieces is a little trickier

01:04

But it's Not that the meaning of the word changes

01:07

instead it's the idea that the word has two meanings

01:10

both a literal and figurative one The literal meaning of

01:13

pieces refers to actual physical bits or chunks of something

01:17

like pieces of glass or pieces of pie The figurative

01:20

or not literal meaning refers to someone feeling so many

01:24

emotions that they almost stopped working So if you go

01:28

to pieces you're probably having a hard time emotionally it's

01:31

Not that you're actually literally breaking into tiny fragments though

01:35

so yeah a is our answer here If someone is

01:37

being loved to pieces it just means that someone loves

01:40

them so much They're liable to hug them until they

01:43

break figuratively which will totally happen If you buy us

a bucket of dibs Don't say we didn't warn you
