    Overlook is a word. A confusing word. If I overlook something, did I see it or not?

    I should think you'd merely, observe it from above. 🙄

    Yes there's that, as in 'my window overlooks the sea', but it often also means to miss something; 'I overlooked the clause in the contract' , which I suppose means to look over and beyond something, and therefore not see it.

    My chair is too high for this computer and as a result I initially missed this thread.

    In short, I overlooked this thread due to overlooking it.

    😕

    Overlook is a word that has more than one meaning. Choosing one means overlooking the others.

    I'm looking over a four-leaf clover
    That I overlooked before.
    One leaf is sunshine, the second is rain,
    Third is the roses that grow in the lane.
    No need explaining the one remaining
    Is somebody I adore.

    Why are you always begging for 1200 pounds? You sound like a street person. 😛 😉

    GoaD and I have a 'special relationship.' Don't ask for details. You don't want to know.

    If it was the hotel you would definitely see it.
