Actual Work Conversation

Monday morning email from my copy editor:

Hey Stacie - Quick Q. In the following sentence, “This modern take on a retro favorite puts the bae in beach babe.” Is the use of “bae” intentional or did you mean “babe”?

Hi, Mark - Yes, that was intentional. No, I'm not proud.


I'll be spending the rest of the afternoon rethinking a few crucial life decisions.
