Typos have a way of working themselves into our family lexicon.
When Hub and I checked into our hotel in Salzburg after our overnight flight from Denver, I dutifully found the guest computer to email my daughter-in-law that we had arrived. Jetlagged, sweaty, and hungry, I grew impatient when signing on because the computer was … so … slow. I zipped off a quick message and went to bed.
What I didn’t realize was a couple of the alpha keys were in different locations on the keyboard in Austria, and I had typed a z instead of a y throughout the email, ending with “I love zou“.
When I checked a couple days later, I had a message from her: “I love zou, too.”
“That’s all, folks!” she said cheerfully and promptly broke into tears of sadness and relief.
I DID IT!!
YOU DID IT!!
WE DID IT!!
I cannot thank each of you enough for your enthusiastic support and steadfast companionship during our A to Z Challenge. I will miss the energy and immediacy of your constant presence, but our friendships have been forged in sweat, laughter, learning and admiration. I am grateful for your gifts.
I love zou!
