raccoon

So Cute and yet So Pesky

This past weekend I was visiting my parents. They have no snow left. Must be nice. Anyway, I saw this really cute raccoon hanging out in a tree at the end of their driveway. He just stayed there in the fork of the tree staring at us. I only had my phone camera, but still. Such a cute creature.

Your Story Doesn’t Stink, Honest!

So I’m working on a student assignment (as part of my work for the Institue of Children’s Literature) and I’m rereading the edits I made on the manuscript earlier that morning.

I read:

Wow! Good fart!

EXCUSE ME? What was I thinking???? Good gawd I am ashamed of myself.

But then I looked closer at my, um…er, less than stellar penmanship. I realized that what I had intended to be a ‘c’ is in reality coming across as an ‘r’ and hence causing the confusion.

I pull out the old pen and emphasize the curve of the ‘c.’ Fixed. It now reads:

Wow! Good fact!

Phew! Caught that one.
