I love encouraging new bloggers--especially kids, just starting out in their writing. However, sometimes what they post is just way too stinkin' cute to not share. And in this particular case, it was a typo that left me smiling. This is from a new, 10-year old blogger:

My Interests: sinning

I know typos are a common occurrence, but sometimes they're just classicly wrong <smile>.

There is a great post on the subject of human-chimp DNA similarities which made me smile for two reasons: First, because it's funny. And second, because it finally gives me some information I've wondered about for a while. Definitely worth a the read.


Puerile: adolescent; displaying or suggesting a lack of maturity
Sophistry: a deliberately invalid argument displaying ingenuity in reasoning in the hope of deceiving someone

Have a great weekend, and I'll see you Monday!

P.S. And one more post I think you should read, though I felt like I couldn't link to it directly in my Other Posts of Note because of the title.

    You know, I have to smile at the typo b/c, even though I'm sure the kid entered that as a mistake, isn't it really an interest of all of us? Humor is often grounded in unspoken truth!

    Mrs. C, you are very welcome!

    Heather, me too <smile>.

    Kim, thanks!

    Ken, thank you for the linking to those articles. They were very encouraging.

    Warren, good point. And, yes, too often, sinning is an interest.
