shrunk vs shrank
Here’s another instance where pop culture has led us astray.
Honey, I Shrunk the Kids should actually be Honey, I Shrank the Kids.
shrank is the past tense of the verb “shrink” (it has already happened)
I shrank your favorite sweater in the dryer.
shrunk is the past participle of “shrink” (it requires a helping verb “have” or “has”)
I have shrunk your favorite sweater in the dryer.
So it could have been; Honey, I Have Shrunk the Kids.
