Did I just write that?

Sometimes I find the most amusing sentences in my own manuscripts! After reading a bunch of childrens and YA fiction, I've been going through my novel and seeing how it compares, livening it up, and generally making it so I like it again (so I can hopefully put it away and move on!).

Also, I've been finding bad sentences and fixing them.

Sentences like this:

"The gingerbread smelled really good after eating so many blackberries."

Pray, tell--how does gingerbread eat anything?

I guess I am not immune from writing nonsense now and then.
