From a book I'm reading:
"Being the duke had other advantages..., including the right to indulge in a pubic display of power..."
Oops. that should have been "public"!!
Whenever I see the word "public," I momentarily freak out, thinking it says "pubic." In this case, I was right! Make sure to put that L in there!
