Tweet of the Day, THIS WAS MY CHILDHOOD edition.

Dear God, but was it my childhood. I still mispronounce the occasional word that I’ve merely seen, never heard. Although admittedly it gets harder and harder, as the Internet goes more and more multimedia…

PS: I am probably going to steal “I was raised by books” at some point.

    Not until I was eight years old did I realize I myself was not a book.

    To do list: look up pronunciation of Michaelmas, swarthy, Hottentot.

  • Freddie Sykes says:

    My mother often mispronounced words. It was a sign that she was self-educated.

  • JustDave says:

    Not sure how you would mispronounce Hottentot… (also, how do you get through life without seeing Wizard of Oz, wherein we are informed that it is courage that puts the Hot in Hottentot)
