Why Not to Be in a Hurry
July 20, 2006

Yesterday, I very very hurriedly tried to get some edits done on a piece at work. I only had the printed copy and no digital copy to work from, so I had to re-type the short piece and edit as I went. Then, I handed it off to the graphic designer to put into the brochure format with the hopes that we would both still work on some of it in the morning.

I am really REALLY hoping that he didn't send it out yet. Cuz, umm ... well .... there's this nasty little typo ... umm:

This means that you can make monkey from people who love this.

Ooops. Guess I have monkeys on the brain or something. Or maybe it was the 3.5 hours of sleep before coming in to work a full day after being gone for something like 11 days. Or maybe it was the shock of being back in Indiana after being in my beloved Texas.

Yeah. Anyhow ... I really hope that hasn't gone out yet. (Or if it has, that he actually saw the typo, laughed hysterically at me and changed monkey to money.)

Red Monkey says: Huh? What do you mean "without compassion for your cause"? What cause? I'm not really sure what you're talking about.

And I thought the typo was grammar-related i.e. should have been 'monkeys.'
