Our Crazy English Language

I have a link on this blog to the Oakland Press newspaper.  I just looked at it to see what the latest headlines are.  I saw the first story which read:  Search resumes for missing Waterford boater.

I read this and wondered how in the world you could find someone by looking through resumes.  You know, re-zu-mays. 

I read it several times before I figured out it was 're-zooms'. 

So much for my brilliance.  LOL


  1. Well of course resumé should have an accent at the end. I read it wrong too, at first.

  2. This sort of thing has happened to me too.

    Isn't it strange how the mind takes a direction and then it takes time to see the correct direction!


I love to hear your comments and will try to reply on this blog and visit your blog when available.
