I am such a vagina

As I’ve aged, I have learned to edit my speech. But every so often, I’ll have a brain fart and my mouth will independently articulate what I was thinking.

Yesterday, during an all-hands staff meeting, I was joking with some co-workers that I had decided to start my own branch in our organization and that I was naming myself the manager. In a conference room full of colleagues, the following conversation took place.

Arjewtino: I’m starting my own branch. I’m the manager. Anyone who wants to join me must apply.

Co-worker #1: What are you going to call your branch?

Arjewtino: I don’t know yet. Something about tech writing.

Co-worker #1: How about the Technical Writing Information Team?

Arjewtino: TWIT?

-- laughter among staff ensues--

Co-worker #2: I got a better one.

Arjewtino: What is it?

Co-worker #2: Technical Writing Assessment Team.

-- this is where I probably should have said it in my head first --

Arjewtino: TWAT?

I shouldn’t be allowed to speak.
