    I really hope this isn't just me ...

    I can't for the life of me type the word "an" correctly on the first try. It always ends up as "and." Likewise, words that end in "-tion" the majority of the time start out as "-tino".

    What words do you all have difficulty typing without slowing down?

    When thumb-typing on my iPhone I hit "n" instead of the space bar about 50 percent of the time.

    For as long as I can remember, a large percentage of the time I try to type "Williams" it comes out "Willimas."

    If I had to cover the Olumpics, it would be horrible.

    I can't, either.

    I and O being next to each other has caused me serious hurt in the past, specifically when shot becomes shit.

    I also can't spell sheriff or convenience without looking them up.

    Int he instead of "in the"

    Seahawks gives me fits, too. That middle part with the "aha" gets me into a left-right-left rhythm, then there's two left hand strokes with the "aw" and I end up typing "Seahakws" unless I remember to slow down for a second.

    I screw up "by" and "my" while typing, and when growing up, I did it while writing. I think it is a dyslexic thing since I was screwing that up long before learning how to type.

    Spellcheck kills me when abbreviating one of our local schools. IHS automatically becomes HIS.

    I often type "form" instead of "from".
