The Dog Doesn’t Die

Book reviews & random thoughts

Editing/Writing Tragedy for 1/22/08

When I buy a piece of furniture that requires some assembly, I want instructions I can understand. So I was quite pleased with the instructions for assembling my new bed frame. However — and of course there is a “however” — the person charged with writing those instructions must have been so absorbed in his or her mission of ensuring clarity that spelling fell by the wayside. How else would one explain the consistent use of “appart”?

Just for the record, I am amused, not outraged.
