Could

I was typing an email this morning and typed this word. Could. And i looked at it and was like.. oh my.. lands. What is this word?? It looks like nonsense! Could?? Coold? Cowld? Am i trying to type (i just typed tryping-hahaa. thanks brain) cold?? Nonsense!

Sometimes i enjoy these brain refreshers, being able to see something common or unnoticed in a new light, with new eyes. But sometimes i am unnerved because what ELSE is there that is totally bizarre-o that is escaping my notice??

Funny. I just had the same experience with school... I had to retype it several times and sound it out. Is that really how you spell school? I felt like I was back in 2nd grade with Sydney. Weird.

I remember doing that with the word "tree" once. The longer I looked at it and rolled it around my mouth, the weirder and weirder it got. I think I tried really hard NOT to let myself to that after that experience, but maybe I need to be enjoying the bizarre-o a bit more...

This is a bit long, but it's one of my favorite quotes from "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead:"

"Hasn't it ever happened to you that all of a sudden and for no reason at all you haven't the faintest idea how to spell the word...which or "house"...because when you write it down you just can't remember ever having seen those letters in that order before?"

It's definitely happened to me before!
