To loose or not to loose

by Miki Saxon

It’s Friday and I decided to indulge a tiny rant, then offer up a little ditty to make you smile in compensation.

First, let me say that I’m not a great typist, actually, based on the results, I’ve come to the conclusion that my fingers are dyslexic. So, although I’m a heavy spell-check user, I’ve grudgingly accepted that most people don’t spell check their emails. I also understand that, when in a hurry, “from” is often rendered as “form.”

Now for the rant.

The next time someone writes that they will loose the project if whatever doesn’t get done I think I may scream.

I’ve only seen this in the last few years, at first very occasionally, now it seems commonplace. Not just in email, but in “professional” business correspondence; not just from the thirty-and-down crowd, but more and more often from the forty-and-up crowd.

Arrrgggghhhhh. Am I truly a voice in the wilderness? Does no one else notice? Is it now a case of use it or loose it? Are most people loosing their minds while I am losing mine?

OK, rant over. Now for the ditty—and please feel free to sing along…

Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.
Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.
Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.

Have a wonderful weekend, and try not to loose anything if you’re traveling.
