Have you ever read a sign or headline and thought, “What?!? I better read that again.”
I read a sign this morning – “Jewelry, accessories, and chocolate.” But that is not what the sign said. It said, “Jewelry, accessories, and collectibles.” This kind of thing happens to me more than I would like – at least this one makes sense – chocolate is almost always on my mind.
Sometimes, when I have misread a word, I get the giggles. Yes, it is as ridiculous as it sounds. Often I share these little reading mishaps with my son – he has the same sense of humor that I do.
He is, in fact, a lot like me. Whether it is in his dna or environmental – I do not know, but he is a lot like me. Maybe I should be worried about him.
