I'm Not Going to Do That
Dr. J told me the other day that I need to proofread my posts because there are lots of mistakes. For instance: I write the word "if" when I really mean the word "of." Fine. But I can tell you this right now: that's not going to happen. I'm not going to do that. First of all Company, you are lucky that I even remember to spell check the damn things. Second of all, I don't listen to the Podcast after we make it each week, so I am not sure what makes you think that I am going to proofread each and every post that I write. I don't have the time and energy for that shit. Second of all, anyone who writes a lot of stuff knows that in order to adequately proofread anything you either need a.) a different person than the writer to do it or b.) you need to wait until the next day to look at it. And that is just too much time and trouble. Lastly, the human brain is so fantastical that it can figure out what I really meant to say. That is what we call "using contextual clues" and you learn that somewhere in elementary school or maybe junior high. In fact you brain is so smart that it really only needs the first and last letters of a word to be in the right order, as long as the other letters are there, no matter what order they are in, your brain can read the word. Taht is pterty cool isn't it? So that is why I won't be proofreading my posts. I'm not going to do that.
