Another post about shoes? Well, not exactly...


This picture comes to us from the fabulous ChicagoLady! She says: A little background on this picture. I have an interest in the American Civil War, have many books about it, and have subscriptions to two magazines about it. One is a more recent subscription that my aunt bought for me. I thought it would be nice to have the two and I could see if I preferred one over the other. However, this new subscription is driving me bonkers! In every edition, in every article there is at LEAST one grammar error. I have told my aunt not to renew it, because the errors make it very difficult for me to actually read the entire magazine. As boring as it would be, I would love to send you an entire magazine so you can see how terrible it is. But, I will spare you from it. Instead, I scanned a picture and caption from the magazine to give you an idea of the awfulness that is this magazine. I cannot wait until the subscription is done this summer.

Now, I'm the kind of girl who usually enjoys talking about shoes, but...this author doesn't mean to talk about shoes here! He meant to use the word shows. Sigh. Now I can see why ChicagoLady gets frustrated with this magazine!

Thanks, ChicagoLady, for spotting this one!

This is what happens when people rely on spell-check alone instead of *gasp* actually re-reading what they wrote! If what you wrote is too boring to you to proof read, maybe you shouldn't share it with others. :)

Excellent point, Mrs. X! :)

Tiny world; I can get to Fort Negley in about 20 minutes from my apartment. :)

And now I've got the "It's a Small World After All" song stuck in my head... ;)

Thanks for using my submission. I was wondering how you'd present it.
