I love it! We can all relate to this one. While helping a group of high school kids do a school cookbook I made the worst mistake of my writing life. I was their typist. There was a lovely recipe for "Crab Dip". It was beautifully illustrated by art students with a crab diving off a diving board. Several teachers helped "proof-read the recipe and were undoubtedly impressed by the art work and the recipe made it into 500 copies as "Crap Dip". Thankfully it could be corrected with a fine point black pen by making the "p" into a "b". Isn't it amazing how things show up after 500 copies are made?
Thank you for a true story that is a great example of why editors are needed. Keep Writing.

Cute story. How true that sometimes one word can make such a difference.

Aahh...that's sad. When the MC was trying so hard to encourage the teacher and strengthen her. A touching story, well written.
