The wrong word…
Hillary wants a break, but maybe just a little one
ABC’s Good Morning America asked how’s she’s doing on The Grandmother Front. She prefaced her reply with peels of laughter: “I will only get in trouble, however I respond to that. But let me just say I love babies, and so maybe I’ll have more in my life some day.”
Not a question, but an edit. Your article online today about Hillary Clinton possibly taking a break and prospects of becoming a grandmother, notes that she replied with ‘peels of laughter.’
The sound of her laughter should not be compared to fruit skins or facials. The word should be ‘peals’ of laughter, as in bell-like tones.
Indeed. We fixed it: GBU Editor
