I’ve been on here for three years! I can’t believe it. 😀 In celebration, I wanted to reshare a few “third” things. Firstly, Seeds was my third post on this blog. Secondly, He Saves was my third poem. Thirdly, Perseverance was my first photography type post.
I found this in my drafts from back in 2016 and thought I’d share for the occasion. I laughed at myself from 3 years ago. I don’t think I kept up with adding to it for the past two years. Hope you enjoy the humor!
Auto-correct and I have a very interesting relationship. Most of the time, it’s helpful and fixes my typos for me or suggests what I was trying to type when I really wreck the spelling of the word.
However, every once in a while, it turns against me and “fixes” something that wasn’t broken to start with; or I’m in a hurry, so I go ahead and choose the first word that it offers me without really reading it first. Whoops. I thought it might be fun to collect some of these mistakes that I caught and fixed before publishing and make a post about it. Some of them are really crazy. XD
From Follow Your Heart…?: “No, this isn’t about the song in Disney’s Mulligan soundtrack. XD” The movie has nothing to do with stew or golf; it’s Mulan.
From The Season for Grace review: “Their backstrokes were so touching.” This novel is set during the fall and winter. Nobody was swimming so elegantly that it was touching. No, it was their backstories that I found touching.
From The Liebster Award: “…Christian Dustpan Young Adult novel…” Uh, no. Just no. How would one even write a dustpan? I wrote the first draft of a Christian Dystopian Young Adult novel. (It also wanted to replace “Liebster” with “Lobster” or “Blister”, but I digress.)
From By Perseverance…: “Here is one of my favorite quotes by Charles Surgeon…” Charles was not in the medical field. It also tried to replace Spurgeon with Sturgeon; Charles was not a fish either. His name is Spurgeon. I’m actually quite surprised that autocorrect wasn’t familiar with his name.
And speaking of the o_O (the shotcut to get this emoji ), Microsoft Word wanted to make my cringing face into an “odor” or an “oboe”. Please. That doesn’t even make sense.
Not even the Bible is exempt from the autocorrect’s clutches. In my post, Seeds, I quoted Matthew 13:3: “Behold, a sewer went forth to sow…” **bangs head on desk** Sower. A person who sows seeds. I thought sower was a known word, so I don’t have any idea where that one came from… Word can be so oblivious sometimes. XD
And there we go. Hope you enjoyed my adventures with auto-correct. 🙂
Wow. I barely even remember writing this. XD
On another note, I’m working on posts for this week – finally getting back into posting a bit more often. I also looking forward to catching up with you all! ❤ I’m so behind in reading your posts. 😮
