Food for Thought: Spelling and Pronunciation
I know I can’t be the only one who does this, so I figured I would call myself out on it and to see if others struggle the same as I do. I am horrible at spelling sandwich, I misspell it every single time and have to go back and correct it. The sad thing is that I misspell it in a different way almost every time. A classic way of how I write it is sandwitch. A sandwitch is not something you eat, it is in fact a person that you never want to encounter on your trip to the desert:
The other way I type it looks like this:
I hate that word with a passion. The only thing I like about the word sandwich is that I can say it correctly. Unlike oregano. I love oregano on my subs, I come from New York and it is a staple to have it on every sub I make. The only thing is every time I try to pronounce it, I make a fool of myself. I always say “can you add or-e-gano on that”? They typically look at me like I have three bald heads rather than one and then quickly correct me. My response is typically the same overused joke “I or-e-gano, you or-e-gano, we all or-e-gano”. Then I bow my head in shame as they exchange an odd glance followed by a nod.
What words do you hate typing or trying to pronounce that relate to food?
