My example is from Love by the Numbers: “She loved her beautiful back hair.” I caught that in the last proof before the book went to press. Take the time to read KG MacGregor’s hilarious examples of exactly what Spellcheck won’t do for you! DEAR DAIRY – KG MacGregor Who writes to a cow? Perhaps when you’re up pasture bedtime and in the mood to share something you herd. Udder nonsense. Turns out Spellcheck isn’t a perfect editor. Many years ago, I came within a curly hair of turning in a dissertation that contained three references to pubic opinion. Lucky I didn’t muff that one. They would have snatched that degree right out of my hands. (Reblog etiquette – Comment and Like at KG’s blog.)
