And I call myself an editor

After a meeting today for a project I'm working on, I received an email from the client saying that documents being used to create the health tool should be stored in SharePoint -- software that allows documents to be shared and creates a history so that we always know what the latest version is.

I wrote back an email saying among other things: "I’ll put stiff there as soon as I can."

That prompted the following reply from a doctor who is also working on the project:

just remember to bag your bodies before storing them 8-).

Guess I had that coming.


  1. Even the best editors can make a boo boo. At least the doctor has a great sense of humor. I'll be you laughed out loud.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  2. It happens to all of us, and at the best of times. One letter misplace can change the meaning and even when we proof read our work we still make boo boos.

    At least as the previous commenter suggests, your doctor colleague has a sense of humor. No harm done.

  3. Sounds to me like your subconscious was telling them: "YO! I got your share/ware RIGHT here!"

    LOL! So don't want to exploit off-shore slave-writers, eh?

    Aloha, Friend!

  4. You've got find something to trigger the laughter.

  5. Glad this happens to people besides me, Grandpa!

  6. Always funnier when it happens to an editor :)))

    I like the sound of this Sharepoint; never heard of it and would love to get a hold of it....
