Doin’ the Splits

In contemplation of the split infinitive: consider the basic verb form (to do, to laugh, to holler). When you stick other words in the middle, you split them: to constantly laugh, to loudly and obstreperously holler. Just don’t split them too wide open. Go ahead, do it. Only the clinically challenged purists will notice.
