In transcendent error

Because I had heard it long before reading it (and knowing it for slang appropriation) ... I've always mistaken knackered (implying "sent off to the works to be reduced to pasty adhesive") as nacred (meaning "having acquired a pearly lustre").

Probably related to my artsy background, aspirations, labors & ongoing dreams. I like to make a mistake, when the result is exquisitely right.
