    I admit it took me two reads until I noticed the issue. It’s much harder to catch missing words than extra words.

    Thanks for playing, Lisa! Yes, there’s a missing “to.” That’s what caught my eye.

    Another Mistake Monday participant noted there should probably be a comma after “episode.”
