Just Leave a Massage

MessageTypo

Whoa, it’s pretty difficult to send a “massage” through email. I caught this typo on a craft site. It’s another case of one little letter making a big difference. Some other cases besides massage/message:

  • Pretty/petty
  • From/form
  • lips/lisp
  • Kit/kite
  • fat/fate
  • Small/smell

There are many, many more, but I don’t have time or room to list them. These typos are especially mischievous because spell-check doesn’t red flag them. And as you see, they can be embarrassing. Check over your work, and let others check your work for you.

What are some words pairs that you notice are close that trip you up? I open the floor to you.

Happy reading and writing, my friends!

Send me your typo images! Snap pictures and email them to msseanc@aol.com. They must be real pictures and not images in online links, as those might be doctored. I’m looking for The Real McCoy. Conceal the company’s identity if possible. No sweat if you can’t. I’ll hide the name before I post it. We’re not looking to embarrass, but to educate.
