9. When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.

10. I did not object to the object.

11. The insurance was invalid for the invalid.

12. There was a row among the oarsmen on how to row.

13. They were too close to the door to close it.

14. The buck does funny things when does are present.

15. A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.

16. To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.

17. The wind was too strong to wind the sail.

18. After a number of injections my jaw got number.

19. Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.

I am a deliberate typo-ist. I find spelling mistakes enjoyable and free-flowing than fully correct texts and literature.

Typos are in a completely different realm than misspellings. And let me share this with you all. I had a battle with my spell checker just yesterday evening. (Unbeknownst) the spell checker doesn't recognize as a word but its in the dictionary and i've spelled it correctly. Ciao for now:)
