Editing is fun.

Editor, who is a really, really, REALLY nice person that I'm considering marrying because she's so darn nice:

Hi Stephanie. Just a quick question. On page 74 you have the following phrase:

"Well, he can just go suck a bag of dicks!"

Did you mean "suck a bag of snakes?" Let me know!

Me:

Hi Editor. No, I actually meant suck a bag of dicks.

Thanks!
Stephanie


Editor:
Oh.


Me:
Yeah. Sorry. I should have warned you.


Editor:
No, that's quite fine. No problem. You're just very creative!



*Several minutes later*

Editor:
Exactly how many is in a bag?


Me:
I dunno. Six?


*Several minutes later*

Editor:
Oh my.




I hope when I said, "Slap the dog and spit in the fire"? She didn't think I really slapped my dog. I would never do that either.

Gosh, I would think how many you could fit in a bag would depend on the size of the bag. Also, depending on the situation, six doesn't really seem like enough, ya know? ;)

Hilarious! I do hope we'll see the word "peen" used appropriately. That one is my favorite.
