Yesterday my cousin related a story that has kept me chuckling all day today. She and her husband once took some Amish on a short trip. The Amish told my cousin they want to eat at an S-Honeys sometime on the trip. My cousin and her husband did not know what S-Honeys was. As they drove along they saw a sign for a Shoneys and the Amish said, "There's one!"
This little story gave me an instant flashback to last Sunday when I heard someone say a person was "deVASted" (instead of devastated). Now I am wondering how many times I do something like that. I'm not talking about my thick PA Dutch accent but getting the emPHAsis on the wrong sLYAbil. If you ever hear me make such a blooper, correct me. That would be less embarrassing than continuing to mispronounce a word and having people snicker under their beards.

We want to know if you are snickering under your beard.We would like to see that.

It was a very short snicker. :-)
