We had to be especially careful typing documents dictated by Dr. Thomas Curd.

Saw this headline in a newspaper for medical records professionals, believe it or not.   I don't remember the exact wording but do remember the typo:


They specialize in belly buttons!

I once heard a perfectly legitimate sentence in a dictation that cracked me up:

"The patient's umbilical hernia was repaired by naval surgeons in Korea." 

Mr. Sirius said they must have been specialists.  What can I say?  It was late.

For some reason, I have difficulty when typing words that contain double letters. For instance, school often turns into scholl, or room into romm.

I once typed up a list of names that were to appear in a publication, and submitted it for approval. My editor couldn't stop laughing when she got to:

Bobby Paston (but with my quirky typo on the first name, and another misspelling on the last)

I get bobby/booby, but what does Paston become???

My guess:  pasteon (paste on)  or pastie/pasty.  The little tassel things that strippers use.

That's exactly it; I was trying to not be explicit, but I guess I erred and was not very clear. Sorry for the confusion!

I thought it perhaps had become Booby Patton...

The one I've seen a number of times, often done by vandals outside schools:  dropping the L in public.
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.
