*A WHOLE NOTHER THING:
A selection of words from my vast vocabulary, including the ubiquitous "the," the always versatile "and," and the more obscure "incontrovertible," arranged in frequently meaningful, sometimes profound, yet often pedestrian sentences and statements, designed with one goal in mind-- that being, to communicate; keeping in mind the oft-used bromide, "Never use two words when one will do the same job as two or more words would have done, unless you just want to take up space and sound important," which is, I must concede, too often a secret objective of mine indeed. And yet, now, the secret is out.

Oops!

I love typos. (Well, maybe not.) But this one was printed on a box that I delivered today. There it is, printed in full color for everyone to see. This package contained a computer. Pretty blatant example of someone not proofreading, I'd say. Sounds to me like someone adapted the wrong word to a well-known phrase, and then transferred that error to this box. Maybe we need another proofreader?

I was under the impression that Caesar "conquered" the world, not "concord" the world... (that, and the fact that "concord" sounds a little past-tense, and in this case, it should be present tense. But that's just me.)
