Just One Letter

Romance author Susan Andersen spotted a typo in the e-book version of her novel Baby, I’m Yours. See if you can spot the problem: “He stiffened for a moment but then she felt his muscles loosen as he shitted on the ground.”

Oops.

That’s a pretty good Romance typo, though it doesn’t go quite far enough to surpass Christina Dodd’s three-armed cover model.

(Thanks to bookshelves of doom for the Susan Andersen link.)


A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.

One thought on “Just One Letter”

  1. “He stiffened for a moment but then she felt his muscles loosen as he shitted on the ground.”

    “Shifted–he SHIFTED! God, I am so appalled, not to mention horrified that anyone would think that’s what I wrote.”

    “Shifted”, or “shat”, Susan, either one would seem to fit. Take your pick, they’re both the same price.
