quite recently an email was sent to you containing the word 'formally' which was unfortunately spelt, 'formerly'.
we would like to apologise for any distress this may have caused and promise that it will not occur again.
of course, ultimately we will all be dead and these things won't seem so important but while we are here, we may as well spell words correctly.
To give some context, the original email said, in part, and the first time that Simon has formerly performed outdoors.
Gave me quite a giggle, it did.
