The psychopathology of everyday life no.22

This morning, when proofreading an essay, I found that I'd accidentally written 'art shitorians'.

I immediately thought of Freud's dictum that all errors are products of the subconscious. 'They have a meaning and can be interpreted,' he said, 'And one is justified in inferring from them the presence of restrained or repressed impulses and intentions.'

Or perhaps not so repressed, in my case.
