Dear John,

I know your name isn't John, my mother told me to use that name. I am sorry to have to say this you  but I think we should see other people. Napping with you has been fun but I need to move on with my life. You could do so much better than me . Susie is single and she is always looking at you. I have seen you check out her big, round blue eyes. I have drank Peter's milk and I like the taste of his while stuff better. He really enjoys it when I play with his lincoln log. I am keeping the macaroni picture that you made me. I wish you all the best. Good luck next year in first grade. You will always be my first kiss.

Love, Samantha

Studies show that the brain can read words even if they are jumbled as long as the first and last letter are correct. Was it easy to read the jumbled paragraph?

I didn't have much trouble reading it. It's fascinating the way the brain can read things . . . even if they're jumbled like that.

which would be why you shouldn't edit your own stuff... your eyes FIX it! I hadn't seen THIS one, but I got a work email a couple years ago that was similar... freaky stuff, what our brain will fix.
