Don't you hate it when... write something online (or on-paper) for public viewing (or for a single viewing) and realize *days* later that you've had a complete brain fart and used a word in the wrong context? It's SO frustrating. You've edited and spell-checked and things looks good ('cause spell-check doesn't know from context) and so you post the entry or send off the email. Why not. And then a couple days later, for shits and giggles, you decide to look at the old blog entry or that sent message in your "sent mail" folder (I know I'm not the only one that does this) and you have a mild heart attack when you notice the typo. NOW it's as clear as day. A misspelled word is easy(er) to forgive, but a word used out of context? You're an idiot. The reader is now convinced you're an idiot. In my previous blog entry I wrote (and it has now been fixed), " far as getting 'sewed' is concerned." FuuUUuuck. I meant, SUED. Have you ever done that before? Written "your" instead of "you're?" Or "they're" instead of "their." Of course you know the difference between the two, but in the moment, you're convinced that the wrong one works. I feel a nagging shame. Meh.
