One of the minor pleasures I receive is my daily Yahoo Horoscope. I put little stock in such things but do find them amusing and at times even coincidentally pertinent. Some days, however, they present a more curious sort of entertainment value.
From this afternoon's edition:
"Turn inward today. Meditation is perfect, but even just a loon walk on your own may be enough to jog your thinking back to where it needs to be. Get in touch with whatever matters most to you."
A "loon walk?" What the hell is a "loon walk?" Am I missing out? Are they trying to tell me something? Hmm.
Mirriam-Webster defines "loon":
1. : lout, idler
2. : boy (chiefly Scottish)
3 : crazy person, simpleton
And this, good readers, is why spelling is so important.
