Can you spell R.E.T.A.R.D....?

Right off the bat I have to say I am seriously pissed at myself. I painted a picture I seriously loved and it was pointed out to me by someone who wanted to show off their total awesome spelling skills (jerk) that I fudged up a few things. Ok…ok, I’ll admit I was actually glad this happened with friends and not strangers. Even though I was embarrassed I would have been MORTIFIED if it was with someone who didn’t know I am actually NOT an idiot.

Most of the time.

I spelt “afraid” wrong, twice actually so at least I’m consistent, and then I left out the “e” in “falsehood.” Now that one was a total fluke because of the way I had to keep using the same letters over and over. Needless to say, I made the whole thing twice as hard as it should have been and then dropped the ball. I just can’t understand what I was thinking because it is so obviously wrong when you look at closely.


Am I going to let this get me down? Of course not. Ok, well maybe a little. I just have to keep reminding myself that it happens to even the best of us (obviously). I could have fixed the spelling mistake but there is no way I can add an extra letter in so I am going to have to just cover it up. Fortunately, I have been on a craze and have the perfect idea already lined up. I have also decided to redo the original one. I’m not sure when, but I really liked it and think it’s worth the effort.

But at least this one came out fine.

I can’t help but wonder why I wanted to admit this to everyone, but it is kind of freeing to tell the world “Yup, I fucked up” and then shrug of the self criticism.
