One teeny letter. One big mistake.

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Misc. life

It’s summer, and summer = reruns here at the Fishbowl. But don’t click the Back button just yet. I’m reposting some of my favourite posts from the past.

Don’t rely on the spellchecker.

Even though the story is a repost – it’s new to me and boy did it make me laugh!!! Thanks for helping me start my day with a big smile and a chuckle. I have to ask, at the end of your post you mention this mistake helped you “…solidified a few things in my mind…”, what did it help you solidify?

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
