Recent Wilsonisms*

  1. The other day, I was driving to my sweetie's place and happened to pass one of the "Amber Alert" signs which declared:

    EXPORT
    DRUNK DRIVERS

    ...except, of course, that it really said "REPORT", not "EXPORT".

  2. Today on my BBC News feed, I saw a headline that I would have sworn read:

    "Battle rages in key Skyrim city"

    ...but then I saw that it really said "Syrian city".

*For those of you who may not know what a Wilsonism is, I direct you to this post.

I had a friend who would mishear things all the time. Damn funny. We always made her tell us what she thought we said. One example I remember was someone made a comment about "an unusually large amount" and what she heard was "an unusually ardent mouse." :-)

Not only do I miss read thing but I also miswrite things.

Did you know that these are symptoms of AD/HD? many people who have mild AD/HD and are quite intelligent will misread/ miswrite/mishear things and notice it and find it funny, often thinking it is mild form of dyslexia.

many things I have been learning because of my little one.

Really! I had no idea. Well, that explains it. :)
