Not That This Happened Or Anything

Let's say, for argument's sake, that you have a food that you purposely mis-pronounce because it makes you giggle.

Like, maybe you call bananas "beneenees" or spaghetti "spagHetti" or jalapenos "halapenyos" or a sandwich a "sammich".

You know, that kind of thing.

So, let's say you have this mis-pronunciation thing and you like it because it makes you giggle and then one time you go into the grocery store and you ask someone to help you find a certain item, but because you're so distracted with whatever else is on your mind, you're not really paying attention when you ask for help and you unknowingly mis-pronounce the word.

Out loud.

In the store.

To someone who then repeats the word to another person at which point you wake up a little and realize that no, you didn't want help finding beneenees, you actually wanted to know where the bananas were and oh man why aren't they laughing can't we all just pretend this never happened?

I mean, if that had happened to you, would you have been embarrassed?

Rhetorically speaking of course.

I love that! Especially 'sammich'. My embarrassing moment would involve ice-queam, or perhaps pi-nipples, (that's pineapples in a South African accent) if I'm feeling naughty!

Why do I always get the impression we would get on like a house on fire?

One of our kids took AGES to learn to say "Vegetables" - she gave up for a while and called them "Vegadoobydoo" lol

My 4 yr old daughter:

"Aminal Crackers"

I now say it too as I really don't want her to be corrected. It's too cute and she's been saying it since she was 2. Plus I really don't want her to grow up. :) Maybe she won't as long as she continues to say Aminal. *crosses finger*

I like to pronounce brocolli as broc-co-lie as if in the plural
I used to be a grocery store cashier and sometimes I'd ask the customer to confirm what produce they were buyingnwhen it was odd foreign stuff and I knew I'd always mispronounce it so I always wanted to say to someone "this is bro-co-lie right?" but I never did :(
