I thought fellow writers would enjoy a sentence I came across in my copy editing work recently:
"Recovery time varies but is approximately about one week."
I bow down in awe of the inefficiency. I enjoyed this so much I was almost reluctant to change it. On the other hand, razing it was pretty enjoyable, too. It now reads:
"Recovery time is about one week."
