I’m going to honest, I’m a terrible speller. The red squiggly line frequents my computer screen highlighting the fact that I never used Hooked on Phonics. And, apparently the Leapfrog Speller Santa gave me in 7th grade didn’t do the trick, because I just tried spelling “phonics” 5 different ways before I had to google it. However, I do know how to spell “college,” a word Miranda Lambert does not.
While I was ignoring my law lecture and stalking twitter accounts instead, I saw these three tweets in a row by Miranda Lambert on October 24.
“Showing pics on phone of where the sonic used to be when they were in collage ad now it’s a parking lot. That is sad I love sonic.”
“I can’t even spell college! (collage) hahahaha that’s why I didn’t go. What a D bag. Sorry y’all thanks for listening. Done:)…hahaha
“PS to write songs you just have to know how to sing the words not spell them. So there! Kids of the World… go to “collage”:)!
I know it’s only 140 characters, but she didn’t use even one of those characters to make sense.
Let’s review the problems here:
- Doesn’t capitalize “sonic”
- Spelled “college” wrong
- Spelled “and” wrong
- I think she forgot some sort of punctuation between “That is sad,” and “I love sonic”
- She calls herself a D bag (…)
- We aren’t “listening,” we are reading
- Is “Kids of the World” a book?
