SORRY FOR THE INCONTINENCE

Perhaps my all-time favorite spell-check disaster was when someone at work emailed, to about 50 people, “I apologize for the Incontinence,” instead of “I apologize for the Inconvenience.”

Because, when you think about it, is it not such a beautiful metaphor? Shouldn’t all writers be required, in the prefaces to their important literary works, to apologize for the incontinence?

If it were up me it would be on its own page, right in the middle, right after the copyright page, and before the acknowledgements.

So…as your trusty blogger, and before I continue with  essays, poetry, pith of all sorts…

….I APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONTINENCE
