I was born 198 years to the day after Johnny Appleseed. The differences between us do not end there.

      1. Aw, thank you. I did spend a good ten minutes or so figuring out what was the number that could most easily be overlooked.

        If it brings anyone comfort, I think I’m done with these ordered-with-N-mistakes posts for a while. They’re amusing, at least to the writer, but they are kind of a reminder that the difference between whimsy'' andlogic puzzle” isn’t actually that funny. It’s maybe a kind of performance comedy, but I worry there’s a certain hostility baked into the premise. If I were doing this at an open-mic comedy night then I could offer my pleading eyes, or at least my vulnerability to insult, as a way to equalize things. As it is, I have to trust that I do enough of these where the joke is discernible that I can do a couple where the joke is obscure.
