I realised recently that in my email to register my interest in contributing to Equal Magazine – the email in which I claimed to be interested in writing, photography, art, and proofreading – I had made a spelling mistake. In the first line. I had typed “n” instead of “in”.
And so, I repeat: oops.
I do have a defence though. I have been experimenting with flexible (and most importantly, washable) keyboards, all of which so far have been rubbery and not all that easy to use. But at least I haven’t had to wash my hands every few minutes because of my intolerance of greasy keys. Needless to say, I also have an intolerance of many other things, so nothing ended up being Quite Right.
And sadly, I happened to be trying and testing while sending this email. The keys were sticking and missing all over the damn place, but I didn’t want to go back to the World of Obsessive Hand-Washing, so I kept at it.
Apparently I failed.
