Your Story Doesn't Stink, Honest!

So I'm working on a student assignment (as part of my work for the Institue of Children's Literature) and I'm rereading the edits I made on the manuscript earlier that morning.

I read:
Wow! Good fart!

EXCUSE ME? What was I thinking???? Good gawd I am ashamed of myself.

But then I looked closer at my,, less than stellar penmanship. I realized that what I had intended to be a 'c' is in reality coming across as an 'r' and hence causing the confusion.

I pull out the old pen and emphasize the curve of the 'c.' Fixed. It now reads:
Wow! Good fact!

Phew! Caught that one.
