Thoroughness Challenge

Thoroughly Thursday

Thoroughly Thursday is a weekly post where I type a couple of paragraphs that contain spelling and/or grammatical errors, and your job is to find them. The same post is repeated at the end of Fun Friday's Spelling Challenge, with the errors corrected and highlighted in red.

This is on the honor system! No spending all day, printing it out, looking up have to complete the challenge here.
Also, please keep the errors you find to yourself, rather than list them here...we don't want to "help" anyone inadvertently!

Here is this week's Thoroughly Thursday challenge,
which contains 24 errors. Good Luck!


It's hard to beleive that summer is behind us. The absense of warm weather effects many people who suffer from rhuematoid arthritis and other joint ailments, yet can be a releif to those who suffer from allergies. There are fewer pollutents in the air, but the fluctuating barometeric pressure results in aches and pains definately being more prevelant. Suffering from osteoartheritis myself, I notice a tremendus change in the severety of joint stiffness.

It seems as though it's comparitively much easier to ease into summer than it is getting used to the colder weather. Our bodies acclamate to the change in climate much better; however, if you happen to suffer from them, nasel allergies do not. The pollenation of so much flora, even the growing of the grass in the spring can wrack havock on our bodies, causing post-nasel drip and itchy, watery eyes. Many find releif from allergies with over-the-counter medications, while some require perscription medication.

And then there's the whole prosess of changing the contents of your closet. The colder tempratures mean bringing out the heavier, warmer clothing. It's one of the things I miss about having lived in California where "closet rotation" isn't really neccesary.


Now remember, keep the errors you find, and
Be sure to check back tomorrow to see how you did!

    It'a actually quite a challenge to come up with these! If anyone wants to volunteer to write one for a Thoroughly Thursday post, let me know! :)

  4. I at first only saw 23, but then saw a comma where it needed to not be. Does that count? Anyway, I think I got all 24, but I will NOT be listing them like I did last week! lol ;)
