    #5. It would have been a good idea to number the sentences so we are both on the same one. Do you think "defiantly " should have been "definitely?"

    #8. "I should of written" This is a common error for "I should HAVE written."

    #12. "It’s interior" should be the possessive "Its."

    #14. "Your welcome" should be the contraction "You're" OR "You are."
