    Chance to confession your failings.

    For example, I truly do not know the red state-blue state thing. Not sure which is supposed to be Republican and which Democrat.

    Gray states I got. Maybe I am politically colorblind.

    Thought for years that "awry" was pronounced "AWE-ree."

    Have tried since I was a kid to do the one arched eyebrow thing and can't do it.

    Once lost a $20 pot in poker because I mistook the 2 of clubs for the 2 of spades.

    This one is related to our industry, and I'm curious to see if anyone else has this problem:

    I hate, hate, hate making cold calls to sources when working on stories, even if it's not hard news and especially if it's someone I don't know personally. I'm the kind of person who likes to be left alone, and I have to psyche myself out to make those calls sometimes.

    I hated that too. Hell, I don't even call my parents all that often.
