Brand new and I already have a blooper :lol:

I was trying to say "Here we have a new book about our celebrated nightingale" and it didn't come out quite right!

This is my first LV blooper, probably plenty more to come! In this one, I can't seem to say a phrase...something about the wording of it keeps tripping me up! :lol: <laugh>

I was trying to say 'deceitful' and it came out 'desteitful' twice!

Yes, sometimes I wonder if the person who invented the word specifically made it to trip us up! :lol: <laugh> Not really. But maybe they made it specifically for a tongue twister!

Yeah - I could run 1.110 meters, no problem. I don't think I could run 1,110 meters anymore. :lol:

This is proof that I was on the right track! I always told my track coach that I thought my perfect event was the 1 meter dash!

I said 'college' instead of 'cottage'...plus two more mistakes. :lol:
