…or, maybe you will.

TDPRI John with cargo shorts and a bumched shrit.

David’s post in another thread just reminded me.

Looking at my son, I said “Hey, your top’s bumched at the back.”

Then I turned, stood there at the kitchen counter, paused mid onion slice, trying to figure out why I felt uneasy, and what was my brain trying to tell me.

Then it hit me, what the heck did I just say?!!?

Interestingly, my son just responded with something like”Oh,” and straightened it.

Hi.

You musta meant his shrit

I know, I’m not sure whether to be pleased or disappointed I didn’t say that too.

Even better, ‘Hey, your shrits bumched at the back where you tucked it into your shrots.’

Cos, that’s exactly what had happened. Sometimes life imitates art, other times it imitates typos.*

Did the shrit-bumching thing start out as typos, or was it cleverly manipulated words like that Noah guy who used to type “map” for amp and “poast” for post?

I don’t know, so I’ll speculate and pass it off as reasonable, and conveniently distance myself from my own statement at the same time.

I suspect it really started as a reaction to grammarian protests against common typos / autocorrections. Whether those were fake or not alludes me.
