In a strait jacket? I understand some liberties but a casual misspelling is a bit much.
A strait is a body of water.
From "Upon Appleton House, to My Lord Fairfax" by Andrew Marvell:
But all things are composed here
Like nature, orderly and near;
In which we the dimensions find
Of that more sober age and mind,
When larger sized men did stoop
To enter at a narrow loop;
As practising, in doors so strait,
To strain themselves through Heaven's Gate.
'If only you could see how it flies strait to his prey.
Did you noticed, someone fixed the typo, it wasn't there yesterday...
You have never read Shakespeare, the master of typos, have you?
