I'll come up with something in a minute.

I sort of hate being dyslexic.

People think it’s just swapping letters and numbers so that “unite” becomes “untie” but there’s a lot more to it than that.

One such problem is words. I’ve got to make sure what I say, or I’ll screw things up and muddle my meaning. I just sent an e-mail where what I wanted to say was “I was just making sure it wasn’t anything urgent” but I actually said “I was just making sure it wasn’t anything important” which screwed the meaning.

It’s a small thing, and those words fit near each other in my head, but important was the wrong word and that annoys me.

Fortunately, the rest of the context probably saves me. That’s the nice thing about verbosity. All those words can make sure your point gets in by sheer numbers.

Pretty cool though, I spelled verbosity right on the first try. Ahh, but my old nemesis “fortunately” was spelled wrong. Win one, lose one. My handwriting is horrific too.
