ROFL - Hi - someone just sent this to me - and am taking a break for about 5 min from my magazine - and I thought I would share this with you.

Can you read this? some tips to use for journaling - as long as the first and last letters are right - most people can read it even if you have misspelled words. Thought this was cute!

This is actually quite amazing. I've read this before and it makes perfect sense. I need to try this same in Finnish sometime. :)

Tanks for sharing. Gave the chuckles again.

I've received similar ones in emails and it's so amazing as to what your brain picks up so that you can actually read what it's saying. Great one Helen

I've seen similar ones too, but this one is great! And yes, I could read it! Thanks Helen for my laugh of the day.

LOL- yes it is surprising- and it's this which helps us along in busy chat rooms with all the typos:)

This is my husband's argument in defense of his poor spelling!

this makes me giggle, because although I do understand it, I still want to grab a red pen and correct all the misspellings!! :laugh:

Thank you, Helen, for sharing this. Thank you, God, for an amazing brain. Thank you, teachers everywhere, who taught us to read so well that we can even read when things are misspelled.
