Chimney and sewage systems. Words we mispronouce.
« on: January 21, 2009, 03:54:56 AM »
This battle you'll love.... My wife Tracey has always made fun of my Mom and Dad saying the word CHIMALEE instead of CHIMNEY. As in the smoke goes up the Chimalee.

We'll tonight, just now I finally caught her. She said "It smells like raw SEWERAGE." I said "Excuse me?" and she said "Raw SEWERAGE" and I laughed and finally knew I got her!

Let's put it this way: if I was wrong here, I haven't paid very good attention as a BOILERMAN for 25 years. I KNEW it to be SEWAGE - no R in SEWAGE. Well I proved it to her - and talked about SEWAGE OPERATORS, etc.

Fells good to be right occasionaly :)

I hope you don't mind cooking you own meals and sleeping on the couch for the next week.   :shock:    :-D

Whenever my wife mispronounces a word or is a letter off or two, I don't dare say anything, besides I think its cute and get a giggle out of it every time.

An elderly woman I removed bees for calls Walmart "Walmark" I just love it!

I dated a girl that said "punkin" instead of pumpkin!

My Dad had a few more, my Mom too... He would say that little card in your glove box is your MOTOR VEHICLE RESTORATION - rather than REGISTRATION. My Mom and EVERYONE within 20 miles calls our local GAME RESERVE "KYARDSMILLS" although it is spelled Colliers Mills. I say Colliers ( colly-ers) Mills and locals have NO IDEA what I'm talking about - lol.

My Mom also said PULSE when she meant to say PAUSE - as in ""Hit the Pulse on the TV, I got to pee!" silly the things we remember.

Around here people say myan instead of mine.
I've heard both woosh and warsh for wash.
Then we have the "yins" as in "Did yins go to the park today?"
My mom, formerly from Maine, likes saying Silveneers for Souvenirs.  We ragged her big time for that.   :evil:

Yeah, my wife, a native Washingtonian, pronounces the name of the state like she was from Massachusetts:  Warshingtun.
