    I always remember that "practice" is the noun because it has "ice" (ie a noun) at the end.

    My mum taught me to say the sentence using 'dinner' for practice and 'eat' for practise. So, 'I must dinner my piano' doesn't make sense, but 'I must eat my piano' does (well, sort of). Therefore 'I must practise my piano' is correct. But then you still have to remember which is which. Sigh.

    The next person I see on FB who uses the phrase 'My bad!' and is also over the age of 30 is going to get a smack. With a bat.

    What does that even mean?
