A Less Sun Fir Mi Sun end Muy Doughtr

With all due apologies to Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, I present the Preamble of the Constitution of the United States as read by spell check but with no proof reading. (Hint: Read aloud).

Okay. Perhaps it is a bit of parental overkill on my part, but I wanted to illustrate to my children why:

1) Spelling counts and

2) Proof reading matters.

P.S. Your three day break is over. Get to work on those reports!

Spell check will catch that thing where they use f's instead of capital S's though.

Leaving a comment is a form of free tipping. But this lets me purchase diet coke and chocolate.
