Never to old to learn something new !!
You're never too old to learn something new !
And today I learned that I word I thought I knew all my life is not what I thought it was ........hmmmm.
I always believed the word was CUMBERBUND, that sash worn around the waist .
Today I discovered that it is actually CUMMERBUND.
Which leads to me to a personal story regarding my first cumberbund failure ( old habits die hard !).
In 9th grade I made a circle skirt ( didn't we all ) and a cumberbund for it.
While combing my hair before school I sneezed and felt like something popped. I assumed it was my rib.
In first period I was asked to bring papers up to the teacher from the back of my row.
As I walked up to the front of the class I thought to myself: "Hmmmm.....this skirt feels especially long for some reason."
Looking down at it near my ankles I realized that when I'd sneezed the button on my skirt popped off but that stinkin' cumberbund was still snug around my waist.
My skirt was falling off! and if it weren't for those stiff crinolines we wore underneath I would have been proudly marching up with my skirt puddled on the floor !!
Oh, the moritification.
