The Hazards of Blogging


See the comments section actually is called 
Times Square! Yippie!  

So definitely you must admit that there are some, right?

Hazards to blogging.

The most apparent being that you look all a fool when you don't know how to spell things correctly.

In this wretched head of mine, I judge too quickly those who write "your" when it should be "you're," as in "Your the best!"

Ugh! Like a dagger through the heart, that is!

Thus, you'd think a fairly smart gal like me would know not to post without proofing. I mean, who do I think I am?! Smells a bit of literary arrogance, doesn't it?

Posting without proofing. Pishaw!

Yet twice I chose that slippery slope this week.

Guffaw #1 - when I accidentally wrote "sheaths" instead of sheaves. I'm not going to tell you what sheaths are, you'll just have to Google it.

Guffaw #2 - Calling Time Square, Times Square. I think I was just missing my nanny/servant girl Hannah. She's studying remedial math in college and I was simply remembering the homework that I help her with when she's having a really tough math day. 

She's really a brilliant girl in all things literary, but math is tough for her. Currently we're working on times tables and square roots. 

So, forgive me for my mix up. I've fixed it.

I know you're all dying to know details re: surgery, and I will write about that tomorrow.

I'm about out, save for the moment by moment wakeups from huge trucks that are barreling by RIGHT OUTSIDE of our window.

Much love to you all...

You were right about "Times Square" to begin with. It was named "Times Square" after the New York Times in 1904, and was formerly called Longacre Square. :-) So, only 1 typo, not 2! :-)
