Homonym errors make me itchy...

Flee: it's a verb.

Flea: it's a noun.

A person can be attacked by fleas, but not by flees.

This would be acceptable: He flees the campground at which he had been attacked by fleas. But confusing flee with flea? Not acceptable.

DONNA, thanks for sending me this cute homonym goof-up!!!
