WORDS I HATE TO TYPE
This list came to me as I was writing yet another column. Duh.
I’ve been noticing that there are certain words I absolutely hate typing. I don’t know why. But every time I come to one, I notice that I stop in my tracks, and try to come up with an easier-to-type synonym. Like I notice I often substitute “pal” for “friend,” even though I feel those two have very different meanings. I actually agonize over it, but the lesser word usually wins out.
On a side note, I hate typing in general, and actually use only three fingers! Weird for someone who typed all my old boyfriend’s papers in college and law school! (A lot that got me, by the way!) And equally strange for someone who types every single word that appears in this E-zine!
So, here’s the list, which I had to force myself to type!!! The things I do for the entertainment of others.
Together—I usually type it so badly that spellcheck doesn’t even recognize it!!!
From—so simple, yet I always write “form,” which never gets corrected by spell-check because it’s a word! They don’t know what I mean to write.
Want—the same with this word. I always wind-up with “wnat” on the desktop and laptop, and the crazy iPad changes it to “what.” So annoying.
Included—I always miss the “l.”
Unfortunately—the worst one ever!!! I got it wrong again right now!
