I was reading something online here and someone had written, "good riddens!" After my initial wince, I laughed in delight and told Sean, afterwhich he said:
"It takes all levels of literacy to make the world go 'round..."
It's so true. Have you ever used a word in completely the wrong way? Or mispronounced one, etc? When i was small i remember reading "Capacity 84" on the yellow schoolbus and I read it as "capa-city" for YEARS. And I remember thinking, dummies.. this is bus number eighty-seven. Ignoring that i had no idea idea what capa-city was. I think that was my first bus ever.
