Ohw rae ew? (How are we?)

Deyboad Kyslexia, noun: A keyboard-related disorder marked by impairment of the ability to structure spellings correctly while typing.

Symptoms generally include: Typing fast with inaccurate spellings, numerous attempts at correcting them and getting them wrong every time.

That's what H and I suffer from. In our dictionary, teh is the and so is the... no, the... GRRR, hte. hte is also the! There, got ti (it) right finally.

Obviously, the thumb rule for deyboard kyslexia is that when you are trying to get it wrong, you always get it right!

While some of the kyslexic spellings / phrases are limited to typing on the comp, there are others that have become a part of our everydat (yes, that's everyday) vocabulary. So some of us have hubsands and I wear a hemlet while riding my bike. Our names become Inud or Heam. And we tell the ricksahw (rickshaw) guy to go sraight (t is missing). Vaat we say is always wokay, of course!

There are also phrases that we have copyrighted and use as if that's the right way of saying things. Chinu was dark of the scared. Tanu often went to bike the park. In college, we have often classed the bunks. Of course, we show our empathy with "I secho your entiments". Some of them are howlarious, really!

When we regress to baby-talking, there is a P equivalent to all our na,es (names). Chintu-pintu, tanti-panti, hema-pema, indu-pindu... Quite simple.

When the three of us used to get into a rickshaw or car, it was statutory to ask "We all fat?" No, not fat fat, but fit-fat. Like sit-sat. Gotted, sented, camed... all goes. So dies (does, does, does) tuppid, idiota, dementor and gube.

Some people might call this just bad spelling, but we figure it sounds better to say that we suffer from Deyboard Kyslexia (Keyboard Dyslexia, if you still haven't figured it).

H's contribution to this post: liek, ahve, smae, maek, tehn, sometiem, oethrwise, taht, thign, forjot, niec and anything that ends with mnet (ment) like entertainmnet.
