Let this mess with your head for awhile:

Aoccdrnig to rscheearch bineg cetodncud at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a ttoal mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

Fcuikng amzanig huh?




That explains my dyslexia though … why I read dick instead of disk , prick instead of pick , fuck instead of flack , suck instead of stuck , ejaculation instead of emasculation ….. and so on .

The choice of words here though has no intention to amuse anyone! I just picked some of the words that in many cases made me really embarrassed when I had to read something out loud .

Example:

A friend of mine years ago gave me a poem he wrote and for many-many years I thought that this poem was REALLY good but had ONE unnecessary and NOT poetic word in it and also it didn’t make any sense with the rest of the poem. I didn’t have the heart to tell him so I just let it pass. If it wasn’t for that stupid word though the poem would be brilliant! It was such a waste of a good piece of work! The word was “ asshole ” !!! Years later I was reading this poem to another friend (while he was reading it with me) and when I came to the annoying word he started laughing! I thought he was laughing ´cause of the ridiculous word in a lovely poem.
Turns out the word was NOT “ asshole ” but “ ASHORE

Yes... it's easier to notice what the piece you quoted says when you start becoming fluent in a language and you stop spotting random anagrams. We were doing tests like this at some point to see who would spot what and I always read out the wrong words as they should be instead, without ever picking up sth was off cause I had stopped paying that much attention at that level if that makes sense. So like there would be a sentense 'the bold Swede...' and I would read 'the blond Swede...' straight away.

As for dyslexia... ha. I make a LOT of funny mistakes like the ones you said but I never have the problem when I'm reading. When I'm writing... oh the hillarity.
