OK, not really. I appear to have contracted a virus that makes me want to nap and eat chocolate all the time, but I haven’t been able to find it in any medical dictionaries. However, cholera has nearly given me a very bad day, simply by not being something you can be inoculated against.
It’s one of those things I thought I’d check up on in the ms, that slipped past the betas, that flew under the radar for the agent, and that I obviously wasn’t bright enough to catch in the first place (not cholera, but the research slip – up). The plot wants cholera to have a vaccination, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be that way. Some minor revisions tidy up the issue.
Really kinda glad that I thought I’d check on that just in case. Would’ve been quite embarrassing to have an editor come back with – “Yeah, your author? Clearly an idiot – MASSIVE FAIL!”
