Okay, so I'm re-reading the conclusion of my thesis, and I read this clause: "more significantly, they do begin to sympathise with the Nazis." I meant "do not"! Where did the "not" go? This was the most important statement of my entire thesis, and I missed one word that entirely reverses what I was claiming! Fortunately, I go on to elaborate, and so it doesn't entirely seem like I contradict my entire thesis in the conclusion. But I have the vapours with a vengeance. I just called the main characters of all three novels Nazi sympathisers.
This is worse than getting Dr. B's middle initial wrong in the Acknowledgement.
How did this pass through all the levels of editing and Dr. B's readings? This isn't like the Acknowledgment, which I didn't edit.
I'm going to go eat ice cream now.
