I am not a grammar snob. I leave that part to my daughter (she’s ruthless with punctuation). But spelling makes me a little insane. I’ve been known to correct my sister’s letters and cards to me.
Putting that red mark over her writing gives me a thrill. (I am sure my sis, a poor speller, does not feel the same way about my fake teacher schtick.) But when I come across spelling errors in my industry, I have to giggle a bit because the misspellings tend to be a bit funny.
Here are a few of my favorite mystical spelling errors (stuff I have seen on other websites, business cards or from emails that I have received over the years):
Psychic – I knew a woman who had a business card and she listed her services as “Physic”. I didn’t bother to correct her. For all I know, she was in on some quantum stuff or some shit.
Tarot – I’m sorry but if you are looking for a “taro” reader, you’re barking up the wrong root.
Sacred – To the person who wrote to me about wanting to show me a “scared” site: it sounds more like something out of the Walking Dead and being as that I am deathly fearful of zombies, I’ll take a pass at your invitation.
Sincerely, Theresa with an H. (Teresa just doesn’t cut it over here.)
