Thanks for sharing, and putting a smile in my day!

I have my own file of unexpected moments while speaking.

When I was a child, my pastor said, "Jonah in the whaley of the bale" during his sermon. :) Needless to say, he lost his point while the congregation burst out laughing. Kinda hard to get the "mood" back after these kinds of slip ups!

I know how you felt. I remember my mind going blank before a small audience. Talk about embarrassment!

Thanks for sharing your embarrashing moment. I once heard a youth director preach an intire sermon on the trouble of having neek wees [weak knees]. He never pronouced it right even 1 time.

Speakers nightmare. The only thing you can do is pretend it was planned! Cute illustration.
Maybe preachers and conference speakers should steer clear of fishy stories. Our pastor also had a slip of the lip once and called it a whale of a belly. After services I pronounced the whale of the belly found. (I won't say where!!) Liked your article. :)
