One Regret

“Was they guy who gave you that tattoo high when he did it?” Alex asked Annette.

“We did share a bottle of wine before he got started,” Annette said, holding up her arm for Alex to admire. “It was really quite invigorating. Don’t you love it?”

“I certainly understand the sentiment,” Alex said, “but did you take a close look at what your tattoo actually says?”

“Of course I did,” Annette said. “No Regrets.”

“You know, Annette,” Alex said, “when I proofread my draft blog posts, sometimes my eyes see what my brain expects them to see, not what is actually there.”

“What, exactly, are you trying to say?”

“The word ‘regrets’ is misspelled.”

Annette held her arm out and looked carefully at her new tattoo. “Okay,” she said. “Maybe one regret.”

    Needs a little double-ended, half-circle arrow to transpose the characters … and another bottle of moonshine cordial.

    If the tattoo artist had tried a little harder, it could’ve been on regerts.

    That happened to my son. He tattooed his wrists with honesty and loyalty. He showed my daughter, who to her credit didn’t smirk, when she advised him they were misspelt. Still has them to this day
