This morning I sent an e-mail from my smart phone to another poet. Later in the day I received a reply. The response was concise and indicated the sender understood what I had sent. Of course along with the reply was my original message embedded in the text. Seeing the message I had sent I was horrified. It contained a significant number of errors. I was both embarrassed and amazed that the recipient could even understand what I said. I felt compelled to sent another e-mail with explanation and I did as follows:
Oh My God! Seeing this ( my original note) underscores why I should never be allowed to type e-mails on my smart phone. No matter how smart the phone is, if my big fat fingers don't hit the right key I'm going to look pretty dumb.
How did you ever read it?
So totally embarrassed!
The reply that came back read in part:
The brain is a magical thing, it makes meaning where there is none. ;-)
