Learning of the day

Before I forget. Yesterday I learned a new word, well actually I learned to spell the word. It's quite common for me to use a word in speech for so long and not know how it's spelt.

This time, the word was "pored". As in 'he pored over the maps and guides in anticipation of his next trip'. All along I thought this word was spelled p-o-u-r-e-d! I don't know why I thought that, maybe the mental image of a person all absorbed in reading and like his eyeballs are "pouring" (as in the forward tilt head position) over the book etc.

Yeah, so sometimes imagination is WRONG.
