So I'm reading a re-released novel by a big name author (theoretically means it's been through the editing process twice) and hit a funny speedbump: A paragraph began with "Peddling his feet in the blankets..."
Double-take. Dictionary double-take. Giggle.
Peddling means selling stuff from place to place.
Pedaling (or pedalling) means working one's feet in a circular motion.
So this poor dude is heading out to sell his wares - in this case, his feet. Hmm. Methinks he'll be out of merchandise PDQ, and probably miss those feet more than a little. For his sake, we can only hope there are no buyers lurking in the blankets.
Probably not something most readers would notice. But funny anyhow.
Romance is sexy!
