Avoiding a Permanent Mistake and Other Public-Service Announcements

As an editor, my mission in life is to avoid mistakes in print. Therefore, I would never get a tattoo. When I'm 65, I'd rather be spending my hard-earned 401k dollars on vacations, not painful laser surgery. But if for some insane reason, I do decide to permanently mark my body, I will certainly not get it done at this store in the Arsenal Mall in Watertown.

Even looking beyond the blatant apostrophe catastrophe, does that place look like it would be sanitary? Contracting hepatitis would be an even bigger catastrophe.

On a positive note, I discovered that the Old Navy in the Arsenal Mall is now an outlet, and bargains abound. I got three shirts, two pajama bottoms, and a pair of flip-flops for $40 yesterday. Old Navy clothing is kind of like the opposite of a tattoo, and I love it. It'll probably disintegrate before it goes out of style.

Haha oops. No, that was a spelling error. Luckily, it is very easy to change mistakes on the internet.
