    Is it "wet your appetite" or "whet your appetite" ?

    Is it "discreet" or "discrete" ?

    Great link~! It reminds me of my favorite bumper sticker:
    "Eschew Obfuscation"

    It still makes me laugh...

      Here is another word that I have had misspelled in my head for years. The word is "proselytise" or "proselytize"...both spellings appear to be correct in my dictionary. I always incorrectly had it in my head as prostletise. Fortunately it is not a word that I have used too often...or have had directed at me~!
