All bets are off

I won’t finish the new YA on the 9th as planned. It was going great, but I received an unexpected call from my editor yesterday. She sent me the copyedit of Major Crush today for my approval and return Friday.

It’s fun to play this word game with people who love language as much as I do and think about it just as hard, but come up with completely different answers. And they are trying to be so polite about my spazzed-out Southernisms. "I am not familiar w/ the word 'bihuncus,' and I couldn’t find it in the dictionary or on the Web. Choose a different word? If you stet, is it a foreign word? If so, pls. italicize."
