You Say Potato...

One last reminder....Signup deadline for the Shake and Shred is TODAY!! Fill out THIS FORM and it will get you all signed up to participate! I am selling the Shakeology at cost, $52 for the 10 Day Challenge!! Challenge yourself to Change yourself!!!

Yesterday I watched Joe play his last softball game of the season (thank goodness!). This is reason number 113 why I know that I'm not ready for kids. How do parents go to all the kids games? How do they not sit there on their phone out of boredom? I really don't know how I'm ever going to attend all of my kid's sporting events. Good thing thats years away.

Anyway, so when we were walking back to the car he said something that made me cringe. It wasn't the word...but the way he said the word. Reese's. ReesEEEE's to be exact. UGHHH. Blood came out of my ears. It's ReesIS. Because the family that created them is the Reese family. Not the ReesEEE family.

Don't get me wrong, I was known as the girl who mispronounced every word possible growing up. There's a few that I won't ever live down in my family. Seriously, every time we drive by an Econo Lodge the whole damn family laughs and points at me, "lovingly" remembering the time I said "ECKoNO" Lodge instead of Econo.

I started to think about all the words people can say so differently just because of where they're raised. Here are a few of the good ones we came up with:

  • Heinz. I seem to insert a T into the word and say HeinTz. Joe claims this is blasphemous and I should stop immediately.

  • Water. Yes, I'm looking at all you Philadelphia kids out there. It's water, not wUter

  • Mom. This one doesn't really bug me, but Joe calls his mom, mum. Not mom. Weirdo.
  • Bagel. This one can't be typed. Some people just say it super weird. Know what I mean? I think its those Philly/Jersey people again.
  • Wash. Again, I blame Philadelphia for letting people insert an R into the word... its wash, not waRsh.
  • Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It's pronounced LancESTer, not LanCASTer.

It seems that there's a trend going on...people from Philadelphia just don't talk correctly. Haha. I'm just kidding :)

Are there any words people mispronounce around you that drives you crazy? I'd love to hear them!! I need a good laugh today at work...because...well... it's Friday!!

Have a great weekend!

  2. I always attack people {aka my husband1} who say LANcASSSster. If you're in PA, it's LANK-a-ster! And I'm totally guilty of saying bagel in the weird way, when I lived in Ohio/Texas/Tennessee people looked at me like I was insane.

    PS - Signing up for Shake & Shred right now!

  3. My best friend was born in Texas, but raised in Ohio. She pronounces root beer as "rUt beer" not sure if its a Northern thing or not?

    1. Haha! That's such a good one! I've definitely heard people in western PA say it that way, so we'll call it a northern thing :)
