Check Your “BeD”–Typos–They’re Out There
To get young students to remember the difference between the “b” and the “d,” we have them close their fists, hold them knuckle left to knuckle right, and have them extend their thumbs: It spells bed without the “e.” But it shows them the difference between the two! Thus the saying, “Check your bed.”
For children it’s understandable–they’re still learning, but for adults–the typos drive me insane! And for some people like Jeff Deck, it has “incensed” him to the point of him traveling the country, wielding his Sharpie to correct all the “wrongs.” NPR has written his story: A Man, A Plan and A Sharpie: The Great Typo Hunt. Check it out–he’s my new hero!
