1. warning !!!!!!
do not show this to young children. I got this in an email a while ago and showed it to my son 'cause I thought it was kinda cool.

He gave up studying for spelling tests shortly thereafter.

but trust me. . .spelling is not his thing.

He can ace five syllable words when he wants to but then he actually asked me how to spell "of" recently. He just doesn't care to concentrate on spelling. He's a math wiz though.

2. How long did it take you to type this?
And did your words keep coming out "normal" by accident?

5. I would have to ask, out of pure curiosity...
how does this affect dyslexics?

Does this mean, that dyslexia really doesn't exist, or would they see your post as we read these, as "normal"... :shrug:
