It appears my embarrasing moment of the week has already occured and it's only Monday! In writing a story for my fiction class, about a family shopping for a tent, I wrote the following sentence: "My brother and I spent hours rifling through bins of brightly colored carribiners and tent stakes while my parents discussed at length such things as the quality of vinyl and the durability of Durex.". Do you note the mistake?

(I obviously meant Gortex, as my professor so helpfully pointed out. Durex is a brand of condoms)
