Bossy thought she had nothing more to say about common misspellings, but ever so unfortunately it’s a slow week at Camp Bossy and there is more.
The other day Bossy was trying to type the word who and instead typed ho which is apparently just fine with Spellcheck, even though every single time Bossy types her own website name, iambossy, spellcheck is all Do you mean embassy?
And one more thing.
Der Onelook Dictionary.com, how come no matter which word Bossy types into your provided field, you say it is a surname?
Finally, Bossy would like to announce the winner of her latest Match Game contest: congratulations Grandma J, you won some coffee!

Hey Bossy … just so you know, my daughter had a teacher named Miss Bleck! And she was the complete opposite of that.

Ho is a word since about the 15th century and is considered middle english. Its an interjection used to call attention to something else. This is according webster.
The more common usage of the word as a noun describing the worlds oldest profession came about in 1965.

Way to go, Grandma J. Maybe if we can get Bossy to come to next summer’s Blog Fest she can deliver it to you in person.

I couldn’t believe the deal about the ho thing…and looked in the little online dictionary that works fine for me. There were 17 dictionary results.

Spellcheck offers a very helpful suggestion for the spelling of my name
Jacquie = tequila

Everytime I write my name, Beckey, it wants to auto correct to beckett. What’s a beckett?
Terresa Wellborn saysNovember 19, 2009 at 9:18 pm
I wonder what the Urban dictionary has to say about the word “Ho.” They usually come up w/some pretty funny definitions…

Hey Bossy. I’m your reader since a very long time now. You have beautiful children and I have a secret crush on your son though I’m to-be-married. And is no more a secret now.
You make my day each time I read you, so I’ve given you a thank-you hug on my blog 🙂
