The only boy who ever broke my heart recently wrote me a letter in which he misspelled the word "apologize". He spelled it a-p-p-o-l-o-g-i-s-e. Even in Canada, his native land, that's probably not correct.
He also spelled "emotions" as "emoitions."
Of course, those were the only two (English*) words he managed to mangle. He did get "melancholic" right.
Even Nabakov's crazy boy never had it so good.
All the little words ... all the little signs and symbols. The universe is definitely communicating with me. I especially like it when it lets me know that my fly is down.
*I will not comment on the misspellings in the French sentences he wrote, because apparently people get really upset when I do that.
