Let’s get this straight: Trevor Doroshenko is at the pinnacle of his typo-spotting powers right now. The Regina music fan caught an “oopsies” in last issue’s Danny Michel Stuff To Do spotlight, where we used the phrase “peak behind the curtain”. Obviously the correct word is “peek”: “look quickly and shyly; peep, especially through a crevice.”
“I can’t help but think of this as nitpicking,” says Trevor, who works as a buyer for the SLGA. “But you have some pretty cool t-shirts up for grabs.” It’s true! We do! And Trevor now owns one, along with a copy of Angela Long’s travel memoir Every Day We Disappear courtesy our friends at Radiant Press (radiantpress.ca).
Congratulations, Trevor! Hope the concert was great!
