They say things come in threes. This past weekend I was reminded three times of the importance of proofreading and proper grammar. First I came across this – a great idea to turn a road trip into an interesting book for fellow pedants, one typo at a time. Secondly, the BBC posted an article about how the internet is changing language as internet slang seeps into common usage. OMG. And finally, on a personal note, my son’s birthday cake became a cake wreck thanks to the lack of a proofreader at the local supermarket. Perhaps I will look back and LOL one day.
*Spot the deliberate mistakes…because my computer’s spellchecker didn’t.
