#SoCS – Spot the difference

13 Comments

As I sat down to write this post, I realized that my job is basically a game of “spot the difference.” Because what is editing if it’s not finding things that are not what they’re supposed to be? On one hand, you have a tpyo, and on the other hand, you have the dictionary. The word is “typo.” Spot the difference!

And for this I spent thousands of dollars in school fees and hours upon hours of studying. HA!

Speaking of words, have you ever noticed how many four-letter words you can spell out of the letters S-P-O-T?

spot

stop

post

pots

tops

opts

Did I miss any?

  3. I think you hit all the ones that are actually words. There are 24 ways you can arrange the four letters, most of which aren’t words…

  5. Spotting the difference is hard when your mind tells you you’re seeing what you expect to see. A newspaper I read online has a “spot the difference” daily feature. You have to find 10 differences between two photos. My time ranges from 00:46 to 5:50 😦

    I hope you have a good week, Linda!

  7. Morning Linda, I think you are spot on for words made out of S P O T . Dad used to give us random words to play that game too. 💜💜💜
