Until I was 19 years old I thought there were two different words which meant the same thing and were spelled the same way:  phonetically MYzld and MissLEAD (both spelled "misled").  Sometimes I would read it one way and sometimes the other.  I just pray I never actually said the first version.  And I was an English major in undergrad and am an attorney.


Me too.

I always see Esther_bunny's name as Easter bunny.  Always; not just at Easter!
