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?
