List Mess

Every so often if I need to try and find something I've written, but not sure what document I've written it in, I'll just go through every document until I find it. Doing this is often amusing, because I stumble upon some ackwardly written thing I had written that doesn't really make much sense when trying to reread it. Take, for example, this strange sentence in some miscelaneous work:

"They thought they had killed everyone, but they later discovered that the Queen, pregnant with a child, her nine month old son, and a servant had escaped on a ship heading for Earth."

In theory, this Queen in question was one of three escapees. The way its written, however, paints a rather different image, one that certainly seems far more painful.
