When you read my body of work, I'm sure that you'll notice many typos and mispellings, oops, make that misspellings. I swear that I proof read my work and it looks just fine when I hit the publish button. I go back an hour later and there is a glaring mistake. I was telling a copy editor of mine about this and she sent me the following that might help explain why people don't catch their own mistakes.
