So Close… yet so incredibly wrong

16 Feb

I’m making this post very brief as I over did it with all those words yesterday.

One of my most endearing quirks* is that I read things like instructions, magazines, and billboards really fast… and sometimes My mind makes up a word or two in the process making thing sound so very strange.  I find myself re-reading things a lot.

For example, this.

And also Fantastic is NOT PRONOUNCED “fanta-stick”.

Here is my latest foray against the English language:

That’s a sub-tile joke!

But in my defense, I work in an architectural office and subway tiling is used a lot… so  it sneakily snuck into my subconscious.


*I’m hoping somebody thinks this is endearing.

      It’s not just me! But I will totally give you a break because at 6:30 in the AM… I’m not so swell with reading my writing either.

    Is it strange that I’m jealous of the cartoon’s outfit?
