Isn't that sad when your own name gets typoed? I type Larua all the time.
My favorites to make are: her for here, form for from.

Talli Roland said...

Shall I just call you Crol from now on, then? I don't do typos nearly as much as I just type the wrong word altogether! No idea how that happens.

LR said...

I do No.5 all the time. What's up with that? :)

Linda G. said...

Hi, Crol!

I often type "read" for "red," and "know" for "no." Homophonic typos are my specialty.

Journaling Woman said...

ME TOO on my name. When I'm typing my name, I don't type it correctly.

Terse
Ok Terese
Ok for real this time Teresa

J.L. Campbell said...

Your number one typo made me laugh out loud. :D I think it might be a case where your fingers are going much faster than your brain.

Slamdunk said...

Oh man me too.

There and their is my most common.

VR Barkowski said...

Why do you think I use my initials? :)

mybabyjohn/Delores said...

I put my lousy typing down to me being a speed demon...my fingers can't keep up with my brain.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Maybe do do is actually on purpose?

Tracy Jo said...

Don't cha just hate that. It is like your fingers just take control and it is always the same words for me too. Thanks for the smile, Crol!

Julie said...

LOL, I want to start calling you Crol now. :D Fun list, and I totally relate to #6 and #7.

Have a great weekend!

Johanna Garth said...

I do lots of hte for the and constantly type their when I mean they're. It's mortifying because I SWEAR I know the difference. It's just my fingers that didn't make it past the fourth grade!

Elspeth Antonelli said...

#4 is achingly familiar and I'm glad I'm not the only one who mistypes their own name. Happy weekend!

Carol Kilgore said...

Laura - Exactly so about our names.

Talli - Sometimes I type the wrong word, too. Or type a mishmash of letters and wonder what I meant when I go back over it.

LR - Don't know, but what a strange word for both of us to mistype in the same way. I guess the left pinkie must travel faster than the right one.

Linda G - I have my share of those.

Hi Terse. Nice to meet you. Crol

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Wonderful post Crol. great list.

Yvonne.

Clarissa Draper said...

Except for the last one on the list, I have made all those mistakes...lots.

Carol Kilgore said...

J.L. - Slug for brain :)

Slamdunk - I don't much mess those up, but sometimes there for they're.

VR - Smart woman!

Delores - Could be.

Alex - Ya never know :)

Michelle said...

Hello Crol!
Oh I make a lot of them too!

Ann Best said...

LOVE those typos. Though I have to say that because grammar was/is my strong point, the its/it's drives me crazy.

You said your husband laughed out loud at The Long, Long Trailer a few weeks ago on TV. My sister and I laughed until we cried when we saw it that long ago time in our childhood! (Thanks for stopping by!!)

RaShelle Workman said...

Great top 10. My biggest typo is: teh for the.

Carol Kilgore said...

Tracy Jo - Exactly so about the fingers!

Julie - You, too. Crol may not answer, LOL.

Johanna - I know the difference, too. Fingers have minds of their own.

Elspeth - Embarrassing, right?

Yvonne - Made you smile :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Clarissa - It's comforting to know I'm not the only one.

Michelle - You'd think we'd all be beyond these kinds of goofs. But no!

Ann - He really loved it.

RaShelle - The seems to be a major typo magnet.

L.G.Smith said...

Nice list, Crol. I also used to to those things, but I'm mcuh better now. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

L.G. - Good to know you're so mcuh better :)

Empty Nest Insider said...

Crol is my favorite, but I can relate to many on the list! Julie

Carol Kilgore said...

Julie - I think that one's pretty much mine alone, LOL.

Linda Kage said...

LOL! God bless spell check

Heather M. Gardner said...

Crol!
Sounds like a sea monster!
I make lots of mistakes.
alot for a lot is a good one.
Heather

Carol Kilgore said...

Linda K - For Sure!

Heather - Or the name of an evil gnome :)

The Golden Eagle said...

You've given me the urge to edit now. :P LOL.

Carol Kilgore said...

Golden Eagle - It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it :)

Old Kitty said...

LOL! I always get you're and your mixed up!! I worked once with a woman who labelled our office cabinet drawers with the word "draw" (as in drawer for paper etc) and I remember pointing out that maybe she meant to add "er" at the end, to which she replied that she used spellcheck and spellcheck never said it was the wrong spelling. Can't win! LOL!

Take care

MTeacress said...

Do you pronounce that Crawl (like on the ground) or Crowl (like the bird)? ;)

Have a good weekend!

Carol Kilgore said...

Old Kitty - Cheers to spellcheck :)

Michelle T - I'm guessing more like the bird. Yeah. "I gotta crowL!"

Conda V. Douglas said...

I love the one about your name! I do that too! Most often I do my name as Cinda--which is a name I despise!

Carol Kilgore said...

Conda - At least I don't leave out the O...or I'd be Carl.

Nas Dean said...

I always do 'thnaks' for Thanks. Don't really know how that happens!

Carol Kilgore said...

Nas - Mind/finger conflict :)

Shirley Wells said...

I make these all the time. I tell myself my brain is too fast for the keyboards they give us.

I hate to think how many letters and emails I've signed as Shrilly. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

I'm laughing! Shrilly Shirley :)
That may even beat Crol!
