Under The Spell

Have you ever noticed how some words just don’t look right when you see them in print? Even when you know that they’re spelt correctly?

For example, every morning when the alarm on my phone goes off, and I press the “Snooze” button, I am convinced that Samsung have spelt “Snooze” wrong… but it’s obviously right, because the spellchecker here hasn’t picked it up as wrong.

And the other one that comes to mind is “Glory”. “Glory” just doesn’t look right as a word.

Is it just me?
