Who cares how it’s spelled?


Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno’t mtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres in a wrod are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

Okay, what I get out of this is that I’m not going to worry at all about spelling any more because now I know your brain will “fix it” for you, no matter how I spell it!  (Ahhh, finally an excuse for the misspellings I sometimes foist on you!)

    I’ve seen this before. Cracks me up every time. I’m such a freak about spelling and this reminds me to to take myself too sreoisuly. 😉

  4. The only word I am picky about spelling correctly is “public”…lose the L? Changes the entire meaning of your sentence!

    While I can read it, it sort of stresses me out. Your OCCASIONAL mistakes, however, just make me feel like I can relate to you. 🙂

    June — Lvoe it! Mdae me lguah out luod!

    Beth — If you can relate to me, does that make me the crazy aunt? 🙂 (No mixed up letters for you — I’m not going to do ANYTHING to further stress out a young mother!)

    There goes the sales for spell check.

  8. Sandra says:

    Amy — That’s funny, because I originally titled this “Don’t invest in spell check!”

    The crazy thing is I made it about halfway through this paragraph before I realized that the words were all spelled incorrectly. Apparently my brain IS functioning this evening. That’s good news. 🙂

    Ha, Kerry! LOL! I’ll send you my bill right away for that mental health quiz I gave you that confirmed your brain is working! 🙂
