That reminds me of something funny one of my mom's friends told me once...she went on a date with a guy to a restaurant, and he asked her if she wanted some "Hor durveys." Then later on he asked her if she'd like to visit the "buff-ette." Hee hee hee. She said, "Well, at least he tried."
Actually, I have to watch as I'll intentionally mispronounce some of these words when I'm kidding around (horse durs, et voila (pronouncing the 't'), etc). That's fine when it's just my husband and I (okay, now having serious crisis with you all reading this and wondering if I have that right)
, but it's lately occurred to me that some of my friends aren't going to know that I'm kidding and they all think I haven't a clue about the pronunciation.
And then I have to bite my tounge when I hear canapes
(sorry, not sure how to put in the accent) pronounced as canopies
I posted this on another thread and was informed that "Febuary" is also correct pronunciation; I then looked it up in the dictionary to confirm it. Still, I prefer to hear "February" and actually pride myself on being able to pronounce it this way!
And what's the common thought on sherbet
