Yes, well...there happened to be two...of which Eo has, since, "corrected"(?)/"mistakened"(? lol!) one of, to show as quoted, since I wrote that; otherwise, it just looks like I had lost my marbles for having written that. ;-)

No no, there are still two. "The the" and "importance". That's what I thought you meant.

It was later I noticed that even while having read it right, I still typed "importance" just out of finger habits I guess.

"Finger habits" are hard to change! (or is it just "an old dawg" thing?! lol! ;-)

It is interesting, though, how just one word can change the dynamics of a title; isn't it? :-) I was trying to figure out how proofreading could cause impotence in the first place! That's what caught my attention, in the first place! lol! (no wonder there are so many typos in write-ups; nobody wants to become "impotent" proofreading! lol! :-D

That's one way to draw a crowd to see a vid! ;-) (although I thought it was pretty funny when I first saw it! The dude has probably done the routine forever but I loved how flawlessly he was able to execute such mussed up words. :-)

I thought the same, it must be hell to learn that one.

TC [Girl] said...

Yeah; he done good. ;-)

Proofreading is important in each and every writing work. Even professional authors proofread their very own work for this to effectively create an effect on their readers. It provides assurance of the excellent writing. You are able to take nothing as a given, because unconscious mistakes are extremely simple to make! It is very important that you are aware how to proofread your own work. Marj, offer a business proofreading and other professional proofreading services.
