Poll Results 167

Here was the question:

Which is correct?

"I’m off to confess, my love."
0 (0%)
"I’m off to confess my love."
7 (15%)
Either could be right.
37 (82%)
Neither is right.
1 (2%)

Congrats to 82% of you; either could be right.

The first involves someone telling his/her significant other that he/she is going to confess.
The second involves someone announcing that he/he is going to admit he/she loves someone.

Those are quite different meanings but just one little comma!
