Badly-Dubbed Brain

Not all writers are necessarily grammar-conscious when they speak, but I happen to be very aware of how I speak.  Today has been interesting, to say the least.  It all began with this sentence:

"I win you not read."

Yes, that's what I said, and I spoke it as a complete sentence, with no pause between "win" and "you".

At the time, it made sense in my mind, because I was referring to the fact that I had told my husband *not* to read my blog.  He did not read it, so I felt triumphant.  I expressed it rather comically, as you can see.

Here are a few more gems from tonight:

"Be careful or I'll hit my brain on the wall!"

"It will splatter everywhere inside my."

After several more verbal fails, I finally just gave a "DO NOT WANT!"

Vader style, naturally.

  1. Erk, I just said "We shart" in an instant message, because I combined "should" with "start". Clearly the problem has translated to my fingers.

  2. I'm guilty of doing this and usually my husband takes great delight in pointing it out. Worse yet, I forget words for common things. So my default word is "Thinky". I use it all the time. I'll say "Sierra (My DD) put Wyatt (MY DS) in his thingy." I'm talking about his exersaucer but for some reason I can never think of what its called at the time!
