Proofreading Is A Must
Case in point. I was writing a Theater paper once and I began to critique a play I saw the night before. I realized I must have been unconscious when I wrote it as I began to proofread it the next morning. I started my sentence with:
...The play was centered around a character named Huckleberry Finn who told them...
And then I noticed it...the following excerpt:
...she looked like a monkey in that brown outfit she wore but I didn't have the heart to tell her...
I have no idea who "she" was - and more importantly - thank God I didn't submit it or email it to my professor that night. I wonder now if I was talking about my professor?
Gads! I hope I wasn't subliminally talking about one of you?!?!
