I can honestly say that I have never had a cake with my own face on it!
How fun is this?
Thank you for a wonderful evening, all of you who came to my lecture in Bedford, Pennsylvania last night.
It was a very fun evening. Instead of a regular “lecture” we had a Fire-Side chat where the floor was opened for questions and we talked off the cuff about anything and everything.
And for those of you who are putting on your Grammar Police badges, I’m going to tell you right now to drop it-
It’s not the word YOUR that is wrong! The first two words were supposed to be WE’VE GOT! ((Just kidding….but not!))
I so appreciate the gesture of this wonderful cake, and in the fray of pulling off a hugely busy day yesterday with 51 students, and a full and busy lecture, no one caught that the bakery had made a mistake.
And I’m going to take it in the spirit in which is was meant. I am grateful and so happy to be here. And if I were told "We're glad you're here" to my face by voice, instead of written on a cake, we’d never be the wiser.
In this day and age of auto-correct errors and text so small that I just don’t SEE the typos myself until days later –I’m over it. I’ll give it the best shot I’ve got, but I’m tired of the ONLY comment on any post, or for instance, the email I received the other day being "You spelled Mediterranean wrong.”
But what a fun cake!
Oh, what a fun crowd!
Mary Koval's welcome before I spoke.
And at the end of it all?
Yep! I ate my face! Ha!
