Conversation I had with my friend Spano one Friday in May while I was at work:
Me: I spent out an e-mail to every MEMBER OF CONGRESS with a typo. I win!
Spano: Yes, you do.
Spano: I was just asking myself why this woman was staring at me so intently and then I saw the guild dog…
Me: That made me feel a little better. I told my co-worker I was going to hang myself with my pearls. Very WASPy of me. She didn’t think it was funny.
Spano: I’m so proud of you. That’s going to go on my blog.
And it did. You may read Spano’s blog (also filled with my mishaps) at http://coasttocoastseatosea.tumblr.com/
As for the e-mail to each and every schedule for each and every Congressional scheduler: RSVP is spelled R-S-V-P, not R-V-S-P. The best part of this all being that after being approved by 3 other people in my office, it was a kind scheduler who enlightened me to the mistake about 2 days after the invite had gone out. And again, I hang my head in professional shame.
