The could-have-been-oh-so- humiliating holiday letter




This year my holiday message was brief. On the back of the family picture, I wrote 2 sentence blurbs about each child.  About myself, I stated that I was still employed and in my free time enjoyed volunteering in the community, including my local pubic radio station.

Let this be a lesson and cautionary tale about not putting all one’s faith in spell check.

I count it as a Christmas miracle that I caught the omission before the envelopes were sealed.











Mindful accuracy


I decided to try some therapeutic coloring to foster tranquility at the end of a frenzied day.  I chose this particular book among the hundreds available because of the inspirational messages adjacent to each coloring page.

My fledgling sense of inner peace was shot when I encountered the spelling error on the above page.

I cannot look at this without my blood pressure going up.

May I suggest that the editors of this publication practice being mindful of careful proof-reading and express gratitude for spell-check?
