For this entry, I'm just going to leave my typos where they fall. By thw way I actually typed TYPOS with that typo.
I have noticed when I go back to
read a comment I've made in someone's journal -- come on, you go back
and check yours too -- that I've made a ton of typos.
That's because we can't write our comments in larger type. And there is no spell check.
Plus in my case I'm writing sitting
on the edge of my bed with the screen THREE FEET -- actually forty
inches -- away. Lliterally. You read ten point type from that
distance and see how many typos you make.
To proof read I have to put on my reading glasses, get up and do my own spellcheck. What a pain.
So I re read what I wrote from three feet away and hope I catch my mistakes.
But I don't. And I embarrass myself; With some egregious spelling mistakes and plain old typos.
So you're saying get a chair?
Sit closer? I know. But what I really want to do is re
arrange all the furniture in here first. Blah blah blah.
Actually, I should just embrace my
typos. I was at a personal growth seminar [quick plug for Wings
over there in Other Sites] a few years ago.
And I learned that we are all nerds geeks dufuses, not matter how hard we try not to let it show.
As if to prove to myself what a
geek I am, I had to do something in front of the group all dressed up.
I thought I was looking pretty good if I said so myself.
Until afterward when I went into
the ladies room and discovered I had performed in front of everyone
with a big black smudge on my face and the nastiest run in my stocking
that everyone could see when I turned around.
We invest so much in putting our
best foot forward. So we seem perfect. When we know we
aren't. And in our determination to appear perfect we trip
ourselves up. That whole toilet paper stuck to our shoes thing.
Have you ever geeked out?
I might as well go with the flow on
this one. And embrace my typos and left out words and just ride
the boat over the waterfall smiling.
I can see some typos and messed up
words. Do you know how hard it is NOT to fix them? To just
let them be? ACK.
