It Ain't Me Babe

My son, the budding copy editor, read the following sentence in a magazine: My sister said she would write me from camp.
"I think Highlights made a mistake," he said. "This doesn't make any sense at all. It should be "write to me."
I only bring this up as a warning to my coworkers. He may start reading the Enterprise soon.

song: It Ain't Me Babe • artist: Bob Dylan

(Are you an editor/do magazine work? Have we already talked about this? I'm having mom brain right now. Um, it's Friday? At any rate -- I make my living as an editor, and this made me laugh!)

Hi Karinya,
I work part time for a local newspaper, writing and coordinating their special supplements.
I liked your post about clones. Let me know how that works out for you!
Today my five year old asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I said, "more time," to which he responded that I couldn't ask for that; I had to ask for some "thing."
