"The" Vanishing

The. Few words in the English language are more common. Heck, in the pictured sentence it shows up three times. Well, two and two-thirds times. In its final appearance, the middle letter has made like the cheap dinner-party guest when the bill arrives and disappeared.

Often Ive typed the so fast its come out as teh. Spell check fixes it automatically. (Thank you, spell check!) Im not sure Ive ever omitted the h though. If I did, spell check would notify me. Id have to fix the mistake on my own, but I think I could handle it. Thats te truth.
