Random Tuesday Thoughts: Weirdness

As I was typing the number 2 this week, I noticed the 2 key has the @ symbol on it. I must already know that, I thought, because I type @ all the time when I type email addresses. Has it just become so second nature that I don’t even think about holding the shift key and hitting the 2 when I want to type @?

After you look at certain words over and over, doesn’t it seem like they are spelled wrong when they are really spelled correctly? For example, weird. If you look at weird often enough, doesn’t the word weird itself look very weird?

Okay, so that’s not a unique thought. Unique, unique, unique…another word that looks like it’s spelled wrong if you look at it too long.

Emmy, my toddler, has an obsession with fruit chews. I only allow her to have two packets a day. Let’s face it, fruit chews have no fruit in them. Yes, I know I can buy the über-healthy 100% fruit juice fruit chews, but Emmy wants the box with Nemo on the front. Or Curious George.

So her addiction obsession means that I limit her fruit chew consumption. We’ll be in the car after she has already devoured her quota, and she’ll say, “more fru’ choo ‘morrow?” The first thing she tells me when she wakes up from her nap is “fru’ choo ‘morrow?” The concept of “tomorrow” hasn’t quite dawned on her yet. When she wakes up in the morning, instead of asking if she can have fruit chews today, she says, “fru’ choo ‘morrow?”

I’m reading The Time Traveler’s Wife, and I love the author’s last name: Niffenegger. That name came straight from Harry Potter. It just can’t be her real last name.

  1. I can't tell you how many times I have messed up the @ and 2….kinda like the $ and 4 :)http://iamharriet.blogspot.com/2009/06/worlds-ugliest-doghe-called-911-on.html

  2. That happens to me all the time with words and spelling. I hate when it happens when blogging because then I can't let it go. I have to go look it up. For some reason, I never really learned to type the numbers without looking. I always look down to make sure I'm hitting the right one. At least I don't hunt and peck the letters.Recent blog:=- RTT: Bite Down

  3. How sweet is that "Fru'choo'morrow" Sounds like she really loves them. How do you say no to that? I sit here with a dictionary next to me for the way words often look!Recent blog:=- COULD NOT WAIT

  4. I have had to limit the fruit snacks to one per day or my kids would go through a box a day. They can only have them when the oldest gets home from school. It works fairly well.

  5. Oh shoot!!! I had a comment until I typed my email address in. SUCKS TO BE OLD!!!OH shit I remember!!! I am fascinated my what words the automatic dictionary does not know. We should keep a list. >:oRecent blog:=- Random Tuesday
