Something weird is going on inside my head. I keep misspelling words in crazy, idiotic ways. I mean, writing sentences like “I kep mispeling words in craze, ideotck waz.” And then, I don’t notice it. How is that possible? When I come back later and read what I wrote, it jumps out at me like a sore thumb, shocks me completely, makes me wonder if I’m losing my marbles.
I’ve never been the person that even had to proofread, much less had to proofread through a bunch of third-grade-level spelling errors. I’ve always been a clear thinker and a fast, accurate typer, to the point that spelling errors were almost non-existent.
Am I just getting older? Have I developed Alzheimer’s disease? What is UP?
