Fancy ClANCY

Friend, journalist and fellow blogger Paul of Englishman in New York is always trying to impress me because I am his hero in the world of blogging. His previous attempt to enter my lowercase L domain fell flat, but his latest contribution, almost a self-fulfilling prophecy, is quite nice. After his interview with top selling author Tom Clancy, Paul explains:
Hey William

If you ever decide to peer into the mind of a Lowercase L perp, I am afraid you may be sorely disappointed. Look what I just did.

I have no idea how it happened. I don't remember ever writing a Lowercase L before in my life. Maybe I have been reading your site too often? Maybe it's contagious?

All I know is that I wrote the uppercase "C" followed by the lowercase "L" with the full intention of continuing in lowercase letters. And yet for some reason my hand insisted on the uppercase.

It threw me so much that I even misspelled "EXPENSES" in the second word.

At some point in the future I am going to find this envelope and wonder who or what CIANCY EXPENCES are. How embarrassing.

Paul

Inspired by lowercase L, Paul also has a new photo blog — Look for Signs of Life!
