(I also have that awful dyslexic trait of being unable to quickly discern left from right, when suddenly faced with the choice! :0( Ooooh, it's SUCH a complicated world we live in!!
: Kate, Mark does that from time to time, too. I just tell him, "No, your OTHER left." ;o)
Yup...I often get West and East mixed up (not North and South, tho!).
But it makes my skin crawl when my son refers to going "up to California". UP?! How can that possibly be construed as 'up' when you're in Oregon????!!! You kind of face to the West and real sudden-like turn left...
(And by the way, "sudden-like" was what the captioning on the DVD said!!! "Subtle-like" proponents have anything to say to that?
However, I detected some MISTAKES in the captioning too! Like, they had it:
"Yeah, Nathaniel, but you were never for bein' here."
...when we all know he says,
"You're here, Nathaniel, but you were never for bein' here.")
