I see nothing wrong with it, but we're all entitled to our pet peeves. 

Here is one of mine: I refuse to use the idiom "as well" in place of "too". What is "as well" supposed to mean? And why not instead use the simple and straightforward "too"?

This dialogue makes sense to me:

"I like ice cream."
"I like ice cream, too."
"Great! Let's go get some ice cream."

But using "as well" instead, I see this happening:

"I like ice cream."
"I like ice cream, as well."
"As well as what? Do you like it as well as you like pie?"
"No. But I like pie, as well."
