'I must not judge my own performance,' said Elizabeth Bennet, and of course she was quite right.
Having said that, and putting all modesty aside, I do like to think my typing errors occasionally display a flash of something like genius.
I was writing about Shakespeare's play Othello the other day, and when I came to re-read my piece I found the following statement:
Iago's plot principally involves encouraging murderous jealousy in otters.
I'd meant others, obviously; but, I don't know...
...I wouldn't dream for one single moment of comparing my own talent with Shakespeare's, but I can't help wondering if a strong otter theme in Othello might possibly have been an improvement...
