In the middle of a client meeting today I stumbled over my words and somehow combined the words "web master" and "administrator" in the unfortunate sounding "masturator". Worse even, it was framed within a sentence like such: "So if you are a masturator..." Worse even, the flub made me stop the sentence dead in its tracks, resulting in an awkward pause and some blushing cheeks. Although I'm told I recovered nicely.
I was literally one unpronounced 'B' away from what could have been one of the most embarassing moments of my life. Not that "masturator" wasn't close enough to elicit a few smirks and titters from my fellow colleagues, but if I had indeed uttered that one extra letter I doubt I would have ever been able to live it down.
I'm going to call that one a near miss and thank my lucky stars. Somewhere in my youth or childhood, I must have done something good.

You've never done anything good in your adult life? I hope karma is stronger than that.

My mother once called my brother's former girlfriend a "master braider". We've never forgotten that one.

A colleague of mine reports that she once sent an interoffice email in which she accidentally substituted the word "collateral" with "clitoral." Oh, the embarrassment!
