I don’t feel as strongly as some of my fellow bloggers about grammar and incorrect word usage.
Mistakes are part of writing, and for the most part it doesn’t really bother me to see them (unless I publish my own typo). They definitely distract me when I’m reading, but I’m not going to skewer anyone on social media for it. Most of the time these mistakes just make me laugh.
I wrote an early post about some of the funnier word mix ups I’ve seen. Not my best work, but I still think it’s mildly funny, and the examples still make me laugh.
I thought I’d bring up another one today.

We can still be friends, but know that I am briefly picturing you cat dogging around town trying to figure out which way to go every time you say it.
So anyways…how did CatDog go to the bathroom?
The world may never know, but I think I’d like to have a cat dog.
Get on it science.
