I asked The Viking if he goes somewhere often. Instead of him answering me, I got the stink eye.
Why would he give his favorite daughter the stink eye, you ask??? I'll tell you!
I pronounce the word often as so: "OFF-TON".
The Viking swears the "T" is silent, making it "OFF-EN".
I'm not sure which way is correct, but I now know a new way to annoy my father! Score!
After listening to The Viking rant about his word rage, I couldn't help but think about what words irked the crap out of me when they are mispronounced.
Can I do that knowing I'm the queen of mispronunciation? Of course I can...
Here are the 10 worst words to mispronounce according to Jax!
If you ever AH-sk me a question, I will ignore you.
Unless you are British, then AH-sk away!
I remember the first time Sis mentioned RI-COT-TA cheese. I didn't know what she was asking me for! After my little hissy, she properly asks me to pass the RI-GOE-THA.
This one is like a totally different word! People can't make up their own name for things...
Someone very near to me is named this. I hate with a burning passion when they mispronounce her name!! Her name is AHN-GEL-AH.
I mean, you say Anna, not aaaaanna!!!!! Sigh...
I drink COUGH-EE every morning, not CAH-FEE.
I got out of state and people forget how to say this word!
You want a KA-NO-LEE? Sorry, we only make GA-NO-LEES around here!
...and they are so delicious...
There is a local store around here name SAL-PEE-NO. For some God forsaken reason, everyone adds an extra "i" in there. Why?! It is not SAL-IH-PEE-NO.
The Viking is famous for saying this one offTEN.
If I was a barber and you called me a BAH-BAH I would give you a crew cut on "accident".
That's not a hair cutter. It a thing full of milk I feed my God son. Sigh...
BA-NAY-NAS in pajamas, walking down the stairs...
No, just no... Smh.
Sis also likes to annoy me by talking about MOTZ-ER-ELL-A cheese. No!!!!!!!! It's MOOS-ER-ELLA!
This one is worse than scratching a chalk board to me!!
This one goes out to Madre because she's the queen offender and she does it all the damn time!
Jax, I got a great I-DEAR. Don't you want to hear my I-DEAR?
No, I don't. Anyone who says I-DEAR can't possibly have that great of an I-DEAH.
