Call this a confession. When I write a blog post, I try to pique your interest with a snappy headline. Yesterday, I got too clever by far. Though no one mentioned it to me — I imagine you all are just too polite to point it out — I had a snappy headline alright, but it contained a glaring factual error!
Mind you, I can be very anal about such things. I thought about just changing it, but the corrected version no longer had snap. I decided to leave it.
So what was my egregious headline error? The headline reads: “brother” without an “r” is “bother”.
Be honest with yourself, when you read that headline, did you notice “bother” still has an “r” hanging on it’s butt!?
Once the coffee kicked in, I did. Oops!
