When I cast my eye quickly over what I had written, I looked at that word.....
and I was SUSPICIOUS!
Now normally, when suspicious, I grab my Chambers dictionary (note the
Edinburgh connection there) and check, but that time I must've been in
somewhat of a rush because I promptly hit the "send" button, and it was on
its way into cyberspace before you could say "look that up in your Funk &
Wagnells". There was no stopping it. My apologies.
Thank you Sally for the correction - after that marvellous explanation, I
don't see myself making the same error twice!
- where we really _can_ spell ...... when we try ... honest!
