I am a victim of techno-machination. Spell check and auto-correct hijacked my words; they were twisted, turned and spit back out. What is my computer thinking? When will they develop software that’s not so stupid? Why does this happen to me? What next?
The copy I sent the editor should have read:
This wine delivers aromas of pain grille with jammy overtones and finishes with zesty acidity. It’s an amazing little wine!
Instead, I pick up the magazine to read my wine review:
This wine delivers aromas of pained girl in pajamas overdone and finished with testy acidity. It’s an amusing little whine!
How would you have responded to this one?
