Double Word

When you're typing things in Microsoft Word it will underline words you've spelled incorrectly with a red line. It's a helpful feature for me as I spell many, many words wrong. Once while typing I wrote the word "they" and it appeared with a red underline. I didn't know what to think. I speculated that maybe there was a bug in Word, but no, I'd spelled "they" many times before. I stared at it. I thought I was going crazy. I looked up "they" online to make sure I was spelling it correctly. Then I noticed that in my document, I'd written "they they" and Word must underline the second in repeated words. I am still ashamed of the amount of relief I felt upon figuring it out, and I could tell myself that yes, I am not crazy for at least one more day.
