I was just commenting on someone’s post and I wasn’t sure I spelled a word correctly. There was no computer generated red or blue line under the word to indicate I was wrong. I could have celebrated with a pat on the back -“Yay, I knew how to spell that obscure word.” I did not pat myself on the back.
I was in the comments section and I did not know if the spell check feature worked in that section. So I did the only logical thing. I intentionally wrote goode, and there it is – the little red line.
Yes, I deleted the e in my comment, then i patted myself on the back for knowing how to spell the obscure word. Ironically, the red line was under my ‘obscure’ the first time I wrote it. I now know how to spell it – feat for the day!
Do you ever intentionally misspell a word just to be certain spell check is working?
