My colleague and friend, Jackie Myers Thompson, and I have been going back and forth about a work trip that's been more on-again/off-again than most. (This one may set the all-time record frustration factor.) It's been a little maddening for both of us.
After the last go 'round when it seemed the trip was going to be rescheduled, she asked me about what to do with a potential media stop.
And here I quote," Do you think I should wait until you confirm that? Because I can't cancel and then try and reseurrect it after that."
Now, both Jackie and I are alleged PR professionals and spelling is one of the requisites of the trade. She was pretty sure she'd gotten "resurrect" wrong.
But here's the best excuse ever given for misspelling a word -- and just in time as stores start decorating for Easter:
"I can't spell reseurrect...I'm a Jew."
