It's herper...not herpes! lol

I never realized this but...
I keep a blog (livejournal.com) and some of my non-herper friends didn't realize that when I write *I'm going to the herp meeting tonight* I mean herpetology meeting, not an STD support group!
Has anyone else had to make this distinction for people before?

I forget the exact root of both words, but it basically means "to crawl." Apparently certain forms of herpes can cause a "crawling" sensation of the skin. The reptilian connection should be obvious.

Cheers,
Dave

Arrrrgh it makes me so mad!! lol. My brother's always make fun of me like... "you're going to a herpes meeting??" and I'm like "Ugh, shut up!" People at school sometimes dunno what I'm talking about... "you have herpes? what?" So I always have to "correct" myself and say I'm talking about reptiles. Kind of gets annoying after a while.
