Nothing stops a sentence in its tracks quite like an unexpected outcropping of roman numerals:

Yup, large Roman numerals are tricky. In fact, even numbers written in Arabic numerals used in a text written in any language other than Polish give me a momentary pause while reading.

I've shared this kind of thing before, but it gets me every time.

And this is one that I thought I'd scanned in advance for things like this!

EDIT: Hold the phone! I uploaded the wrong thing! :shock: No wonder it took forever to upload..... :lol:

Edit again: Fixed it. :oops:

I've discovered that I'm not a fan of Hemingway's punctuation (or lack thereof). And yes, I have been know to talk to dead authors! :shock:

Ok, so this is my first blooper contribution, hope I'm doing it right.

Anyways, these bloopers were part of a short 2 minute poem. I had as many bloopers to edit out as there was time. I have included two of my favorites in the same upload (with a few seconds in between)

The first one was when I was trying to say 'bivouac'. Background: I often mess around when googling pronunciations. I was checking to see whether I had edited out all of my blundering about when I found this.

Second one is when I was trying to say 'howe’er'! Who knew a missing letter could cause so much trouble!

Here it is:
