Why typing I can make the occasional error "he" instead of "the" or miss a letter whoops. Fine. But I sometimes write a completely different word and I don't know why? Is this called some condition if so what? Give me the term and I'll research further but I don't even know where to begin on this issue. I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.

Thinking of something else? Word trip up, like typing. Thinking of maths, instead of kissing. Mind wandering. Searching for a word & enter the wrong one, like autocorrect on spelling lol

I do the same things as well, but with the letter K.

I think so. I'll be typing one thing and thinking of another and end up with a mishmash of the two. When I go back and read an old post of mine here, I often cringe.
