A phunny theeng happened while on the way to Bible study…

1 Comment

Yesterday while driving my son to a teen Bible study, we got stuck in traffic. Just down the street from our house, there had been a terrible accident. Sirens were blaring and it sounded like the entire town’s emergency response teams were in motion.


The police had created an alternate route and Aaron and I joined the long line of cars filling the street. I saw a traffic sign blinking information and wondered if the signs mentioned anything about the accident. I began reading the sign but became confused. I have been reading for a really long time and have an extensive vocab but I couldn’t figure it out. It’s not because I’m stupido either, folks. Heck, I even taught myself to read before I started kindergarten. I started with the Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat Dictionary and it’s been uphill since then. But still the sign didn’t make any sense. 

So I was reading the traffic sign and this is what it said. 

ROAD CONSTRUCTION BEINGS  – huh???


Thank goodness I had my camera in my car. I had brought it with me because I had a dentist and a doctor appointment and anticipated some bloggable moments. Praise the Lord, I had no worthwhile bloggable moments, glory!

What is a road construction being? Is it a monster like a King Kong? Should we be evacuating the area immediately! YIKES! Run for your life!

But since I am an avid collector of typos, (I have collected them from several countries, thank you very much) I told Aaron, “Quick, get the camera and take a picture!” Aaron took a picture but I didn’t think it was a good enough shot so I did what a fine purveyor of typos does. I did a quick U-turn so we could get back in the traffic to take another one. 

Don’t you think this picture is much better? 


Can I give you a piece of advice? If your middle OS is going to a teen Bible study and he is worried about getting there on time, just know it will tick him off if you turn the car around just to get a picture of a typo. For a short period of time, you will experience tension but he will get over it, especially if you get him there on time. Just a helpful little FYI. Consider that my public service announcement for the day. 
Well, I have to go now. My mom is out of surgery, her wrist has been fixed. I’m sure I’ll have more typos to share in the future…

  1. I love it! My favorite ones (more like pet peeves really) to notice are actually grammar errors…how many time’s have you seen apostrophes used incorrectly? (that was intentional, btw)Paul
