Je ne le veux pas

A minor boast: thanks to eight years of formal French training, I was able to recognize and correct a minor error in a Pajiba post that has not yet been published (the French version of “I do” in wedding vows is not “Je vais,” the literal translation of the phrase, but “Je le veux,” a piece of useless trivia confirmed by some secondary internet research). It is highly likely that no one would have noticed the error if I had not swung in on my virtual rope and fixed it, but I like to think that I prevented an epic flame war in the comments section which would have cost the lives — and sanity — of thousands.

Just doin’ my job.
