Discretion is the better part of valour?

A few weeks ago, I was introduced at an event. The introduction was long, and began with the "fact" that I had won the Agatha, Anthony, and Oregon book awards.

Only I haven't. Always a bridesmsaid, never a bride, I have been but a finalist.

Today I did a radio interview with someone who interviewed me years ago. She said, "I remember your story about how you grew up having to move all over the place and how books were your solace." Then she said several more things before asking a question.

Only I lived in the same place from the age of 5 to 18.

Both times I just let it slide. I'm not sure how to correct people without making them look foolish.
