Reading Things Wrong

Update 10/30/14: Another of my favorite old posts. . .

I have this weird tendency to read things wrong.  A lot.  Sometimes I even start trying to “make sense” of whatever nonsense thing I thought I read in the fractions-of-seconds before I realize I read it wrong.

So today, I went to the grocery store to pick up something for lunch. (Deli Department’s  Savory Tarrgaon Chicken Breast Salad, Homestyle Red Potato Salad, and Garden Salad with Honey Mustard dressing . . . mmmm.)

As I was walking toward the checkout, I glanced up and saw the In Style Magazine and thought it said, “The Colon Issue”.  My mind was wondering if it was an entire issue devoted to discussing the latest in colon cleanses and the importance of going for one’s colonoscopy screening, maybe a few recipes for colon-healthy dishes . . . and then I realized it said “Color”.



That makes more sense.

Never mind.

    This post made me laugh, I would have read it as colon also. I have really enjoyed reading your blog – thank you.

    I just read this post this morning, and then today I was doing a crossword puzzle. Two of the words were colonist and colorist. 🙂 Obviously I though about you.

    That’s hilarious, especially since I read it punctuationally, rather than anatomically.

    Colons need more exposure.
