Blot: (n) a dark mark or stain
It was a typical piece of white typing paper.
I didn’t even look at it.
I stuck it into the tray of my printer and Xeroxed a copy of some document that seemed pertinent in the moment.
I pulled it out, looked at it, and suddenly saw this tiny black dot in the corner.
I didn’t give it a second thought. Who cares about a blot? Nobody will notice. It doesn’t make any difference.
If I pass it off as a clean sheet of paper, I can probably fool people into believing it’s just fine and there was really no blot there in the first place.
But after ten minutes, I took the paper, wadded it up and threw it away.
Why? Because someone will always see the blot and wonder if I was so stupid I missed it, or so careless that I thought it didn’t matter
