If Lorrie Moore Cannot Escape Typos, What Hope Do the Rest of Us Have?

picture taken of page 143 of the Lorrie Moore collection Birds of America. The story in question is "What You Want to Do Fine" (a very fine story, I should add). What's interesting this is the third printing of the paperback edition of this book...makes you wonder how many times was that typo overlooked.
(if you can't see the typo, it's right in the middle..."somehting")

That's the British spelling. As is teh for our American "the."

The first edition does not have this typo.
