things I used to know

… but was totally wrong about

  • that cummerbund was spelled with a “b” (as in cumberbund)
  • that chartreuse was a shade of red (actually: green)
  • that puce was a shade of green (actually: reddish to purplish brown)
  • that myriad requires an “of” (as in “myriad of colors” not “myriad colors”)
  • that the phrase was “another thing coming” (instead of “another think coming“)
