Bad Speeling

May 15, 2007

There’s a forthcoming certain Son of Romo’s 6th birthday coming up this Friday. Whilst out hastily purchasing vast amounts of party bag goodness this weekend I came across some rather bad spelling – incredible! Wow – an invertation – is that like an invite that closes in on itself? Almost as bad as my attempt at spelling feasible in my O Level English GCE (yes, that’s pre-GCSE – I am getting on a bit). In a fit of panic I spelt it pheasable. Nice – derived from the verb to pheasant of course?

    Ister – yes – they’ve got a nice line in Pirelli ones.<br/><br/>Savannah – oh yes – colanders for everyone

    They should have used the opportunity of spelling party with lots of extra e’s.

  5. rockmother permalink

    Billy – yes – or ‘partay’!

    Tesco local to my workplace have big signs hanging from the ceiling with grave misuse of the apostrophe in plurals.

    maybe it’s an invitation to one of those tiresome yoga parties that competitive parents have (according to a brilliant book i read recently)

    Rivergirlie – hello there! Oh yuck – is that as well as the after-school Advanced Mandarin for 5 yr olds? I kid you not – it goes on – I met a teacher who says she teaches kids that get dragged off to such torture after school on Fridays – by their nannies of course as the crummymummies are out getting a bikini wax whilst snuffling more double skinny triple zero half cap caff at the local spa. x

    Every day I pass a sign that says ‘Sharon’s Toiletrie’s’, and its next-door neighbour, ‘Moira’s Fruit and Juice’s’. Fair drives me potty.
