    as ever

    Dear teachers

    Am I right interpreting this sentence as follows?

    You look good as ever = You have never look as good as today

    or

    You have always look as good as you do today

    Thanks

    You have always looked as good as you do today <- This one, except the grammar's wrong, and you have it backwards.

    Thanks
    The proper expression is "as ... as", but lazy people sometimes leave out the first 'as'.
    The sentence means "You look as good now as you have ever looked before."

    Re: as ever

    I wonder why I typed 'look' instead of 'looked'.
