  • Oh, how the brain works!

    I was delivering lines yesterday which included the phrase 'causing dismay to all mankind' and I kept fluffing it and coming out with 'causing mayhem to all mankind'. My brain yelled dismayhem at me. From then on as I was about to say 'causing dismayhem', I was triggered not to say 'hem' at the end. Hah!
