In Haste, No Edit

Ever have a burst or flow of ideas you want to post on Facebook, Twitter, or your blog, that you can’t wait to share it with your friends (real or cyber-wise). In your haste you mistype a key here and there, then fail to edit it and when you press or click the enter, publish, share, or post button, your entry has a bunch of misspellings? You walk away, come back much later and cringe at the way you’ve written it. Fortunately there is a delete or edit button that you can use but by then, the damage has been done. A bunch of your friends would have seen your post already and think that you are a terrible speller. You can at least hope that your grammar was correct (I always have a problem with singulars and plurals and can’t figure out where to put the apostrophe). In the end though, who cares? It doesn’t matter because most people are forgiving and tolerant of your, theirs, and our imperfections. On that note, here are some signs seen around our condo complex the past few days- For rent: parquin on Atlantic avenue side; and: Water will be shut up off from 12 to 4 P.M for plumbing repairs :-) Oh well, even in Jeopardy!(tm) they are not strict with spelling unless the category is Spelling.
