    Cool Is it a mistake of typing or....

    Hi,

    Is the sentence below or is it a tipo?

    "it was treat to be there" Shouldn't it be "great" instead of "treat"?

    It could be "It was a treat to be there."

    A treat is anything that gives you pleasure, especially something you don't often get.

    (Innocent pleasure, that is. Something appropriate for a child. You would never describe sex as a treat, no matter how pleasurable you found it.)

    I have a feeling there might be some dialects that use "treat" in the way you quoted, but I'm not certain.

    Even if it isn't a typo, you could replace the word with "great" and, coincidentally, it would mean much the same thing.
