Wednesday limerick: AutoCorrect nightmare

Today's words for Three Word Wednesday are: focused, pair, vacant

Your eyes faded to vacant stare
To see "pare" become "pair" and "pear"
Consumed as by locust,
Your text now not focused,
Fork this dimmed spellcheck nightmare!

I'll be honest: I couldn't make "AutoCorrect" work in the last line, since it has four syllables. I used "spellcheck" instead. Sue me.

===== Feel free to comment on this or any other post.


  1. The pare - pair - pear effect seems unavoidable as many of us age! LOL!

  2. Spellcheck works just fine for me.

  3. I wondered what the noise was - it was your spellchecker hemorrhaging.
