Have I been doing it wrong all my life?

'course not Miz J - those uncultivated northerners'll say any ole thang! Your diction's true to Old Country roots :)


tsurely tsuwm mitstake

It’s a regional thang, to be sure:
How the word’s on your tongue and your jaw…
There is no ‘right’ way
Evolution holds sway
Despite what the rednecks may roar!

Jackie, you're getting a lot of grief. I'll send you a bucket of snowballs to fire at each of them...or keep for good memory's sake.

Have you ever heard how the people in Pierre, South Dakota, say 'Pierre'? That'll make you feel su-pierre-ior, Ms. J.
