Ms. Cleborne Fan and Mr. Ole,
I thank you for your kindness here. But you cannot begin to understand the depths of my horror with myself. I always say, if you are going to "ef"up, "ef up" good. But, I try never to live up to that, myself.
For me, this kind of utter brain failure is like, if I had been driving when this happened, they would be peeling me off the pavement right now, and hopefully, no one else would have gotten hurt!
I will be confessing this sin of stupidity on my deathbed.
Awhile back, I had to proof-read a manuscript (in order to get paid, LOL) and the author had made this exact mistake, along with many others. I sent him as sharp a retort as I could without losing my paycheck.
I have no excuse. Except that I'd thrown my back out, and was discovering that pain medication goes well with red wine. And, now I know, not with multitasking. I hope that no one who knows me out there decides to blackmail me with this huge faux pas.
Anyway, as pennance, I will stay home tomorrow (Saturday night) and write a defense of "Frightending Joe" (just mixing up the words there: my mistake with Ole's clever pun).
I wonder what kind of wine goes well with writing a defense of Joe E. Johnston. I like a bold red wine for R. E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson; For Joe E, I am thinking perhaps a sweet, but complicated Germanic white?
I'm not sure where his grandparents were from, but I've been looking forward to opening this particular bottle of wine for two years now. OH, the Punishment, can't I just have the barrel, tee-hee?
Anyway, so as not to hijack this thread anymore, I will post my defense under a new thread title: "Mea culpa", and written in Ole's secret code.
Dreading my Severe Punishment, but Deserving it,
