When you wrote something and your mind was somewhere else. And you wrote loan instead of lawn! Damn, I must be worrying about a lot of things recently. I must have been sleeping yet when I wrote that. Not being a native English speaker is no excuse for such mistake but I corrected it anyways. Thank goodness for "edit!"

Don't worry, I'm a native English speaker and I have to edit my posts and comments all the time! I think a lot of it has to do with being in a hurry, and not taking the time to review what you wrote. Also, when I am myLotting from my phone, it's a lot harder for me to hit the correct keys on the screen...I have big fingers! haha

@toniganzon Don't be so hard on yourself. Mistakes happen from time to time, no matter how careful we are.

Even with spell check, many of my words come out wrong. I hope you are doing well these days my friend.

With the personal issues I'm having and with the political issues in my country, I am not at my best health at all. I desperately need a vacation and hope it'll come very soon. I must try to find time and convince my family to take a break as well. But with Craig's class schedule, we have to make some adjustments.

I've just realized I pronounce those two words the same. Native speakers make similar mistakes, that's actually a sign your very fluent in English. I use the "edit" feature a lot too, mostly to fix the syntax.

I normally don't hit the wrong letters. Not by mistake since I type really well.

It happened to me sometimes but it is usually in German language instead of English language. Thankfully, we can edit it.

I rarely make mistakes especially the obvious one. I wouldn't even consider it a typo at all.

We do not make mistakes because we are not native English speakers, but because we have our mind busy working on its own while we type.

I often come back to a discussion and discover I have an error in it. I hate that.

Don't worry. I see many typos in texts written by native English speakers. I wonder what explanation they'd come up with if one pointed them all out.
