Oops, I Faux Pas’d All Over C’ville

  • I said: “the campus” when I should have said, “The Grounds.”
  • I referred to Thomas Jefferson as if he might be dead.
  • I didn’t say Mickey when I referred to Michie Tavern.
  • I failed to spread the urban myth about Rio Road.

Otherwise, the boss’s visit to C’ville went well; she loved the place, but I discouraged her from moving here (local points in my favor); and everywhere we went, we saw people who knew me and to whom I was pleased to introduce her (thanks, team; the check/s are in the mail).

Awkward moments? Everyone I met for the first time said, “Ah, the blogger,” leaving the boss wondering, “uh, how much are you blogging, exactly?”

Charlottesville: please don’t kick me out; it’ll never happen again.

    Yes, you must never ever refer to Mr. Jefferson in the past tense. I learned that very quickly when I moved here seven years ago. At least you didn’t say freshman, sophomore, etc. Because those first years would have hated that.

    Probably similar to suggesting Elvis is dead in Memphis.
