Misreading the signs

It's getting silly.

Earlier today, passing a bank or building society, I read an advert which, to me at least, read

Give your child the gift of starving

WHAT??? Was my immediate response, before I reread and saw that it was actually

Give your child the gift of saving

I'm not even trying to make this stuff up, this was as much of a genuine misreading as the many others that I've posted. What it says about me, well...

Your sign dyslexia is getting as batty as you.
Prescription; sleep and saving oops starving yourself for alcohol!

I'm starting to think that your brain thinks you enjoy this and is helpfully suggesting misreadings without you being aware of it :)

B, there may be something in that - it sounds plausible to me..

as long as being aware of that doesn't stop it happening, that's ok by me :)

It doesn't appear to have done, at least on today's evidence :)
