Spell Check This
Was spell checking an email on Yahoo mail today.
It kept highlighting the word, "adoptee."
No such word exists. Or so it implied.
The spell checker gave me some nifty options:
Oh, the irony. I was feeling a little invisible today. (I swear, adopters are always well represented...in media, as lawmakers, as spokespersons for adoptees and now...on spell check)
Well, shoot. Maybe I'd misunderstood. Maybe that's what I was supposed to be all this time.
An adaptee. (And no, I'm not anti-adoption. Just anti-adoption-is-wunnerful-no-biggie-pretense)
