It's time to share some of my own writing bloopers. Here's two I made -- among several-- in an article I wrote today. The first one I caught before I sent the article to the editor. The second one I just saw.
1) I was writing about using plug-in timers that turn your lights on and off when you're away on vacation and I wrote:
"Look for timers that have battery backup so they'll still work if there's a power failure."
(I meant so the time would still be accurate.)
2) I just now saw this one:
"Always park your car in the garage with the garage door closed when you are there."
(That sounds dangerous no matter how you read it. I think I meant "Always leave your car in the garage with the garage door closed when you are home.")
