"Pique" amendment

A couple weeks ago I made the egregious error of omitting "pique" from Peak & Peek. Consider this little striptease my apology. I hope it piques your interest... in grammar!

  2. Pique also can mean irritation or insult, especially to one's pride, as in "a fit of pique".

    Pique, pronounced "Pee-KAY", is a type of looping stitch in embroidery or a looping fringe in embellishment, even though it's spelled the same.
