6 Someone’s out to get me…

>> Monday, September 13, 2010

Because we are old friends, you are now fairly familiar with my quirks. A few kinks in my domestic wiring.

I promise I’m not that obsessive…as long as you use the correct coffee/tea mug and turn the toilet paper roll the right way…but one thing that gets me every time—I mean seriously makes me flip out—are typos. Granted, typos are a regular part of my wannabe author hobby & part-time writing gig, but the beauty of typos is they can almost always be corrected…unless you wake up one morning to find that the same coaster you’ve used for years broadcasts a major flaw that cannot be corrected by spell check.

What. The. Frankenstein. I’ve been so concerned with drinking my coffee with two e’s out of the proper mug, my horribly deformed “coffe” coaster flew under the radar for years. The irony in this was not lost on me, people.

Oh no. That would drive me crazy to!

Stacy, the discovery definitely rocked my world. I'm hoping someone tells me that coffee is spelled with just one e in some fabulous foreign country.

Gah! I think I'd have to throw it away...lol

I wouldn't be able to live with it. I would have to toss it, no matter how much I loved it. Grammatical and spelling errors hurt me to my soul!

I'm sorry but this post was hilarious....so what did you do with it?

Ya'll will be so proud of me! I haven't chunked it...yet. I've been confronting my fear little by little every day and I think it's working--my compulsions are slowly fading. I only have two strands of hair left on my head, but still, progress.
