Why can't I type a full blog post without a typo? I mean, really, people - I can read my own typewritten words - or is this just a delusion? It's baffling. I proof, and proof a second time and still I find a mistake later on after someone else has read it.
Maybe this is a new syndrome that needs a support group? I catch other's mistakes in print all the time, so I know I'm not the only one (not that it lessens the frustration level). I wonder what we all have in common. Is it a weak connection between my wildly dysfunctional, bifocal laden eyeballs and my inattentive brain?
Once, I typed a church bulletin for Sunday worship and I misspelled the word "pray" - which turned out to be pretty awkward when the printed instructions to the congregation were to receive communion and then "go to the altar and pay." It would have been terrible, if not for the extra donations they found on the altar (my pastor was not sure if we really needed to correct it immediately).
