A Valuable Lesson

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Otherwise known as "I almost made a Cake Wreck today!"

Today I learned something new. I learned that when you write the name "Curt" in cursive, that R looks A LOT like an N.

And doesn't look that great on Curt's birthday cake either! icon_lol.gif

I had an early morning and I didn't even notice what I had written until I went to box up the cake. I looked and thought "No I did not just write the C word on a cake." But it looked like I did. No worries though, I fixed it.

So take my near cake wreck as a lesson to all!

I know. Right after I thought, "Oh Curt, why couldn't your parents have named you Kirt?"

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting..."Holy Smokes, What a Ride!"

That is the funniest thing I've read all day! Thanks for that thoughtful piece of advice for the rest of us. Poor Curt. What I wonder is...did any of his past birthday cakes see this fate?

That is very funny.

It reminded me of the time I worked at IAPA in Dallas.
I was in charge of creating our worldwide customer directory (airline, hotels, amenities, etc) I had sent a draft to the owner in London. He sent a telex back that SHOULD have said "Your current directory looks great!" But to my dismay it said "Your cu_t directory looks great!"

I was very embarrassed when my supervisor, Tim, asked me to see it. He called the owner who stated that the telex somehow removed the rre out of the message.

Not cake related but sort of related to this discussion.
