  1. πŸ˜€ But I trust my readers to overlook my mistakes. I don’t hang out with supercritical people β€” it would be a waste of my precious time.

    1. Unlike you, I love hanging out with “supercritical people”, Jean. That way my learning curve is always on the trajectory. It’s why, instinctively, when still at school I always chose the one and only running partner (we ran in pairs) who I knew was faster than me. Yes, Susanne. The way I kept close to her heels bettered my running time – every single time.


    2. I agree but, with autocorrect/edit, and with a little care, one can avoid making spelling mistakes while using the computer. The same cannot be said for hand held devices where unless one is very careful some big goof ups can happen precisely due to autocorrect. This is particularly true when one uses English script for Indian words/names!

  2. many of my comments that I make, aren’t exactly about “incorrect spelling” rather I leave out an essential word – I’m particularly fond of forgetting “not” – maybe self consciously it feels like a negative word, when I don’t want negativity to ruin my day…

    1. Grammatical / punctuation mistakes can be even funnier than spelling mistakes. Like these:

      Sought: Two strong, clean youths for sausages.
      Wanted: Precast concrete man.
      Need: Woman to run up curtains.
      Wanted: A room by two gentlemen 30 feet long and 20 feet wide.
