My mother likes to ignore the way things are spelled and make up her own pronunciations.
Blockbuster = Blockbusters
Episode = Appisode
Andy Griffith = Andy GriffiTT (with lots of emphasis on the TTTTTTT)
It drives me crazy but I can understand where she gets it… My Grandma has her own special language:
Wash = Warsh
Shortening = Olio
Oil = Oral
…And that’s not to mention her way of sneaking “that-there” or “them-there” into every sentence.
It makes me wonder just how I managed to end up such a shining star in the subject of grammar.
Guess it came from my Dad?
