An Unfortunate Correction To Yesterday's Birthday Wishes

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 7.236% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

In wishing my wife a happy birthday yesterday, I said this:
“If you think I’m wise, witty, or at all interesting, she’s probably about 50% of that.”
Now, what I meant to say was, “If you think I’m wise, witty, or at all interesting, she’s probably responsible for about 50% of that.”  Instead of complimenting her, I made it sound like I thought my wife was half as interesting as I was.
However, I did prove my point.  Gini did not approve that birthday wish at all before it went live.  If she had, she would have said, “Uh… is that what you meant to say?” and I would have corrected it.
This is the function Gini serves in my life: stopping me from rampant stupidity.  Give her a hand, folks.  She’ll be here all week.
