Mistakes Were Made

Shout-out to E Z Reader for using the tip jar! Yay, thanks!

I almost don’t deserve it, considering what a day of mistakes this has been. First, I forgot to acknowledge Paul P. and Arne for being among those who sent me today’s penguin story (twitch), then I refer to a character as “Lucille” in a post, but call her “Velma” on Facebook (twitching intensifies), and just now, I mistook a pair of jaguar cubs for a jaguar and a panther. I have made (peak twitching achieved)… mistakes!

    Don’t be too hard on yourself, Mike, we’ve all been there. It’s Friday – Happy Hour Time – have a beer!

    It’s a relief to know you’re human, Mike.

    You’ve got Brain Farts. Go for a walk. That always helps. 😜

      Wouldn’t that give you the infamous Walking Farts?

        Nahh, not unless he’s over 50 yrs old at least. 😉

        Yeah, but at least he’s outside. Not under the covers.

    I prefer to call them learning experiences rather than mistakes! We still love you, NTMTOM! Happy weekend everyone!

      What AMYLIZ said. We love you anyway!

    For what it’s worth, Mike, you were spot-on on the panther thing: http://a-z-animals.com/animals/panther/ The person who said it was to jaguars was also correct. I say it’s two squeewittlebebbehkittehs, personally.

      Ah, thank you. I really wish these animals would get their names sorted out. That’s the whole problem with Nature: it’s too chaotic. 😉

        It’s the fault of the zoo folks – they should put name tags on all their animals.

          If I could find my Dennison label maker from the 70s, I would make it my mission to label animals….starting with my own kittehs because sometimes I just give up and yell “Hey you, cat, stop barfing in my shoes!” 😁

    Here’s some positivity for you.

    To err is human,, to divine is to be…one of us.
    Thank you so much for your website! I love your humor, your insight, your wit, your irreverence. That’s what feeds me.

    Hey Mike, we love you just the way you are!! 😀
    Besides, you’re not the only one who gets something wrong now and then; I’m the only person I know who NEVER makes any mistakes. 😉

    We can call them panjuars maybe. Jagthers.
