Unfortunate typo of the day

Drat! It's been fixed. However, a Google search will confirm that a sentence in this story originally appeared online as:
Days after, I remember taking a bath and balling my eyes out.

We all deal with our grief in highly personal ways.

I thought only Harold Robbins wrote that stuff.

Him or Sidney Sheldon. Hey, did you know Sidney Sheldon did "I Dream of Jeannie?"

Sheldon wrote for William Morrow when I worked there in the '80s, and I often went through the slush pile.

Judging by the letters we received, he was surprisingly popular with prisoners.

Hahaha! FYI, worker honeybees (who are all female), will ball a deficient queen to death. This does not involve genitalia, but rather the girls cluster tightly around the queen in a ball, until she overheats and perishes. It is also known as "cuddle death."
