ad naseum, ad nauseum, ad nauseam, etc.

I HATE misspelling words. Use my spellcheck often, still mess up.

When I wrote the title to the previous post, it bothered me, but I was in a hurry and published it. Since it wasn't in my dictionary, I finally checked it tonight and found out that I had it wrong.

It stands corrected and I learned something.

All these years, I had been spelling it wrong, as in the second example, besides the fact that I left out the 'u', as in the first example in the title above, when I wrote the previous blog post.

I can only offer the lowly excuse that I never took Latin in school.

Now back to our regularly scheduled misadventures.
