I Thought We Were Friends

Anyone that has followed me, for any length of time, knows how my butt puckers, every time I hit Publish Post.  AND, knows I'm not one to put pictures of myself out there.  Heck, I cringe when I see a camera.  Now, imagine my complete and utter embarrassment, to find out LONG after the fact, that none of you bothered to tell me I had a major typo on my forehead.  I thought we were friends.  Friends are supposed to have your back, or in this case, FOREHEAD.  You're fired!




The following is a conversation between me and a friend, about my embarrassing typo.


ME:  I owe you an ass kickin'!  I'm SO embarrassed.  Why didn't you tell me I had a typo on my forehead?  Twink wanted to see my recent blog posts and when she saw that one, she said, "Granny, what's Braig?" 

Holy crap, how could I have missed that??? 

You're fired!  How could you let me go, from March 13th to April 4th, with Braig Farts on my forehead!?!  *hides head in shame


FRIEND:  Fired, huh?  Can I have an exit review?  And maybe a merit Bonus for past performance or a bit of Pension??  Yeah, I didn't think so.  So what does "Braig" mean???  Make something up Quick!!  Wonder how many people looked it up in the dictionary?  I'm going to right now.

After a little bit, she mails me back.
 

FRIEND:  I can't find a thing on "braig", no matter what language I try,....
this is the best I can do on short notice and hopefully it will save my job.
 

ME:  Oh yeah... now you try to fix it!  Where were you when I needed you to cover my ass, er, er, HEAD!  Too late, now, my embarrassment is beyond control.

PS:  I LOVE THE HAT!  I feel a blog post coming on.

FRIEND:  I Wasn't Your Editor Then!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And just remember, little missy, I put that hat on your head and I can sure as hell take it back off!!!!!!!!!!!!!


If it's any consolation,
I made myself a crayon last year for a Halloween avy.  (Yes, that's short for avatar)





Ok, I have to admit... I do feel a little bit better.

The rest of you are still fired!

My apologies Ms. A.........I didnt notice the typo. Maybe you could give me a second chance???
Love the hat, and I absolutely love the rose.

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

Okay maybe it's because i am your dumb reader.
I do not know what a halloween 'avy' is so is it a typo or should I be held back and wear the dunce cap again? (short for avatar?) stop laughing!

Love the hat though. :-)

head hanging low...giggle, thanks for the giggles ( what is a halloween avy) Smooches!

Ms. A said...

Katherine, that's short for avatar. Glad you got a giggle, I'm still sweating.

Pat Tillett said...

I am one of those people! I totally missed it. I SUCK at proof reading because my brain always seems to be on "auto-correct" and never informs me that something is wrong....
Love this post and the photos!

blueviolet said...

I didn't notice! I still didn't notice today and had to look again. My brain read it properly, so you did an excellent camouflage cover-up for that typo!

Hartwood Roses said...

In my defense, I usually read blogs early in the morning (ignore the fact that this is late afternoon) and my eyes don't quite focus on fine details like the subtle difference between 'braig' and 'brain' ... they're synonyms, right? If this is true, then it's not a typo. Trying to save face and you're not buying it, are you. I give up. Sorry to have been so negligent. I'll do better next time.

Marlene said...

Hanging my head in shame.....

I get a load of crap for being the "spelling" and "grammar" Nazi of bloggyland...so I took a break. Ha ha ha. xoxoxo

Gigi said...

I'm just like Pat - my brain (or is that braig?) always automatically corrects what I'm reading - probably because I read too fast. But you got blog-fodder out of it - so that's a bonus.

Copyboy said...

With those mad photo-editing skills you're hired in my book.

Sarah, "GOOD ANSWER!"

Ami said...

Granny, I didn't have my glasses on when I saw the photo.

Hell, I thought it was a smudge from Ash Wednesday.

Am I still fired?

Deborah said...

I'm with JJ and I'm serious. I was so enthralled with your photo I never noticed the misspelling.

Kinda like The Department of Pubic Health. Ya know?

Shrinky said...

But, but - I just ASSUMED you had a wider vocab than me, I never thought to question the validity of braig, and now I'm proper gutted to find out you have feet (or should that be a forehead?) of clay..

I am so disillusioned (sob)!
