Words inside words.

Have you ever suddenly noticed a word inside another word? Computer words searches make this a more frequent occurrence. I just noticed the familiar word inside "chemotherapy."

Yep. Interesting choice of a word to dissect. Hope everything is ok.

Fen: No. My mother is dead, so there will be no news there. I was searching an article about someone for some info on who his mother was, and a search for "mother" found the word highlighted inside "chemotherapy."

Fen said...

Cool. I was worried you were researching chemo stuff.

I saw "moth." I didn't even see "mother."

If you take "mother" out of the middle it leaves "Cheapy."
