I keep seeing a topic of "Eclectic pianos", and then realising it surely must be "Electric". However, careful reading reveals that a letter is missing from "electric" - it says "electic". So my mind is inserting the wrong missing letter in the wrong place to give me a real word smile.gif

Browsing around the less popular end of Viva Strings (looking for something about tuners) and I was horrified to read that apparently ESTA Summer School give 'lousy concerts'! blush.gif

Czerny, I think my children need smiling lessons. Holiday beginning to drag (especially in the rain.)

On a similar theme, I always seem to mispronounce 'English Heritage' as 'English Heretics'. Can't think why. unsure.gif

I can only plead concern about a close family member's prostate cancer for seeing this one every time I log in.

Me too. laugh.gif It might just be that I don't automatically think of pianos as being electric so the 2 words don't go together very well for me.

Not actually misreading topic titles but I was just reading some slightly older posts on the What's Made you Happy Today? thread and misread "I've managed to meet The Hairy Bikers and James Martin" as "I've managed to eat The Hairy Bikers and James Martin" blink.gif

Why is it that I'm misreading 'Tarnish Nightmare' as VARNISH NIGHTMARE.

Is there something about pots of spilt varnish in my past that I've forgotton?

Was rather disappointed to discover that there wasn't really an interview with Gustavo Gargamel.
