Joke's on me

Oops. Turns out it was a joke. I had to have it explained to me, but I get it now.

Ironic, isn't it?

What Mr Brown meant to say was, "As well-intentioned as she is, my mother is a shit copy editor."

But his way is funnier.

So it seems I've made a grand fool of myself in front of all five of my readers. Will you respect me in the morning?

I did apologize to him and explained that I had a root canal this morning. (The third and final part of the root canal. Yay! Stay tuned for the saga of the crown.) I find all this dental work is making me cranky.

Still, the copyediting profession doesn't get the respect it deserves.
