Have you ever thought about the difference one word can make?
We have a line in THE LIAR SOCIETY that reads as follows:
"Liam shook his head back and forth, and Seth looked like he might poop his pants."
Our copyeditor helpfully pointed out that, gramatically speaking, it should read:
"Liam shook his head back and forth, and Seth looked like he might poop in his pants."
But, um, that's not funny. At. All.
Isn't it amazing how one two letter word can transform a sentence from a snarky observation to a Depends commercial?
For the record we ended up accepting almost every single change our copyeditor proposed (we're pretty sure she's some kind of genius), except that one. What can we say? We take the whole pants pooping thing very seriously.
