Clever! I'm going to be clever! I carefully choose my words. I work up to the highlight of my cleverness. I humorously work in the pinnacle of my cleverness, double checking the spelling lest I inadvertently offend. I copy it. I paste it on the blog. I check quickly again to be sure everything looks right. I post. I wake up this morning and am curios to see if it has been read. And then I notice. Somewhere through the magic of technological spell checking, my humor has changed from a clever play on words to be politically incorrect! Not being Bill Mahrer, I am chagrined! The word is spelled with an "I" not an e. It's that way on my draft. Ritard (to gradually slow down, musically). If my computer has offended, I sincerely apologize. The error has been corrected, and a lesson well learned for this author! And you? You are loved!
