Spelling

     Facebook can be such an interesting place to hang out some days. I really enjoy being able to keep in touch with family, friends, and classmates. Living in today's crazy busy world it's nice being able to stay in touch and seeing glimpses of each others lives.
     I'm a very literal person though, and when I read status updates, I envision what I read. Therefore when something is misspelled I will see a picture in my mind of the thing I read, even when I know that the writer meant something completely different.
     Today someone made this comment.
     He was a real roll model in my life and taught me so many things. The way he taught me to not waist money was grate.
    In my mind I immediately pictured some guy in a lame commercial trying to sell bread rolls while informing a young man not to fold paper money in a way that would make it look like a dress. The grate topped the scene.
     My poor head hasn't been the same since.

  1. Well you sure made me laugh this morning! That was hilarious. I've been avoiding Facebook just because of the negativity on it. Thank you for the reminder that it's not all like that. I think my favorite part are the cute animal videos.
    Blessings, Betsy

  2. I keep my facebook account as I am living in one state and the majority of my family are living 10-13 hours away. I like receiving/sending letters the old-fashioned way, but I don't think the majority of my family understand what isn't electronically related. I like the instantaneous of electronics. But reading/writing an email is just not the same as an actual letter. I love viewing pictures on facebook.
