To, Too, Two

I almost missed it, but this month marks the second anniversary of Homophones, Weakly! To celebrate, I figured I should finally get around too To, Too, and Two. With special thanks two everybody who has suggested it over the years. Sorry it took me so long.

Hmm, maybe this one is clearer? Now I'm just second-guessing myself. (eh? eh? second guessing?) :)

Resinate & Resonate

With an I – treat with resin, e.g., trapping an ant in amber.
With an O – emit/amplify sound or some other vibration.
"The children's horrified screams resonated throughout the museum when they saw that exhibit of resinated human bodies."
Thanks to Abe for (sort of) suggesting this one.

Meatier & Meteor

I had this whole storyline going, with a dinosaur eating another dinosaur then noticing something falling from the sky... but I just couldn't make it work. Then I wanted to have a meteor shooting through the sky, followed by a MUCH larger one, a meatier one... but that didn't work because I always do these pairs alphabetically, so Meatier had to come first. (Rules is rules.)
So it's a pretty straightforward pair of images for you today, lacking in the humor, depth, and nuance you've come to expect from the Internet.
