Well, that’s embarrassing.
As someone who types every last letter of every single word – even when texting, a slip of the index finger can lead to a stunning repercussion.
As Sophia from The Golden Girls would say, “Picture it: White House, Tennessee; 2015 …”
Our Entertainment staff is off-site this weekend, deep into rehearsals for our new shows for this season.
Leah texted me excitedly about the cast of characters. We have “powerhouse vocalists,” plus circus-themed specialty acts, including break dancers, a silk dancer, and a juggling unicyclist.
So I texted her back.
Here’s what I meant to say: Glad you’re so excited about the show. Start blogging!
But since I have this shortcut programmed into my texting: sp = Season Pass … and typoed “sp” instead of “so,” my text turned into:
“Glad you’re Season Pass excited about the show.”
Of course, I didn’t catch it until Leah’s reply: I AM season pass excited!
Her next text: I hope you know this is a thing now.
Yes, of course it is.
Because our entire Entertainment cast for 2015 was just clued in, right?

This is as teasing a bunch as I’ve ever met.
Leah comes by it honestly, from her parents.
And she is season-pass excited about that. And about getting a chance to try her hand – er, legs – at unicycling.
We hope you’re season-pass excited about riding Thunderbird this weekend. Yes, we know there’s a 50-percent chance of an afternoon storm – but that means there’s also a 50-percent chance of no storms. And there’s a 100-percent chance you’ll save a bunch with this great deal on e-tickets this weekend.
