Mistakes were made . . .

Describe a time when you were just wrong on something and made yourself look stupid or ridiculous.

I'll start. In the process of editing an article with a professor and another person, I wrote that 'such and such should be put this certain way, because such and such is an adjective, describing that noun.'

It turns out that such and such wasn't actually an adjective.

I tried to interject some humor. Life goes on. But it's an ugly feeling.

Who's next?

No, but when I was 10 or 11, I tried to ride our unbroken pony and it danced me off it's back.

When I was in college I somehow thought the word was LITIGINOUS and not LITIGIOUS and was owned by some dork in a debate even though I was right on the issue, and all he had was an attack on my wrong word use.

Been there. When I was 12 I broke my arm trying to be all gung ho on a recently broken pony.

Didn't end well for me.

That too probably explains a lot.

But, no, it's not an adjective. It's not describing Helios. It's identifying him, I suppose. So I guess the rule according to the Chicago Manual Style is just keep it "sun god" but perhaps in this case, put a comma after "god."



(And this has been another chapter of First World Problems).
The word "sun" is the adjective, describing the word "god".

I once shot a man in Reno just to watch him die. That wasn’t very nice.
