I am SUCH a nerd

So, one of the guys at work is married to a woman from Latvia. He mentioned earlier in the week that she was going back for a visit, so when he got off the phone with her today and told me, "The eagle has landed," I knew what he meant.

"She made it okay to Latveria?" I said, completely unaware of the slip.

He just stared at me, obviously trying to figure out where the heck Latveria is.

At which point I realized my mistake and had to shamefully explain that I'd honestly mixed up his wife's homeland with the fictional kingdom ruled by Doctor Doom.
