Dictionary, please?

I have this wonderful friend (and her husband) in D-town who let me stay with them to 1) save gas, and 2) not have to drive home so late at night. I've blogged about them before, but I don't want to miss an opportunity to tell the internet how much of a blessing they are.

The only downside is that my friend and I usually wind up staying up WAAAAAAAAAAYYYY too late, and I'm exhausted the next day. Today's exhaustion provided a funny that I couldn't resist sharing.

I was asked to lead a team from my company for United Way and had to give two 25-minute presentations. As part of the team, we picked a volunteer opportunity for our building:

Me: "There are XX agencies that the United Way of Northwest NonofyourBeeswax supports, and to give you a chance to volunteer and see what your money goes toward, we have picked two agencies on the opposite ends of the speculum."

Clearly I meant SPECTRUM.

I completely cracked myself up, but since no one caught it, I corrected and jumped back into my shpeil.

Bits, I will need to log at least at 11:00pm bedtime at your house from now on. Thanks.
