  • TYPO!!!
    “George think Dan knew as well as George did that there wasn’t much to do…”

    This is hilarious and sounds as though it might be TRUE!

  • Thanks for catching that, and the same problem a couple lines down. 

    I don’t know if there’s a way to edit a story once it’s been posted; if there is, please tell me, and I’ll fix it.  Again, many, many thanks for the help.

    Glad you think it’s funny.  It is, shall we say, true in a sense.

  • Never mind, I found out how to edit it and fixed several typos and reference problems.

  • YAY!  Literal Translations looks better in the long run if it is PERFECTLY edited prior to press.  (For which reason, Dave, ahem, I would just like to submit MYSELF, who hav only made two errors in posting today, for the potion of Head Proofreader.  Resume fort coming.)

  • I noticed a few “George think” that were not fixed.  I didn’t look closely enough to see if they were the same ones.

    I also noticed an instance of “both of us” that should be “both of them”.  Transitioned from first-person, eh?  Did you change the names to protect the innocent?

    This made me laugh out loud a few times and it was easy to read.  Good job!

  • I think we are liking the story….

  • Well, I thought I had fixed them, but maybe I didn’t know how to save the text after I’d edited it.  Do you have to hit “quick save” before you hit “update”?  I tried again this morning, and I think it’s fixed.  Thanks again for pointing these out.

    Thanks as well for your kind comments.
