I realized yesterday I can't talk. I guess speaking English is not my forte anymore.
Yesterday I called my boss to tell her I was going to be late because there was this bad car accident on the enterance ramp. So I proceed to tell her that I just got on the Interstate at "U-nit-tah".....
For those of you that don't live in Colorado, it's pronounced "Yoo-in-tah"
Totally mis-pronouncing Unitah like a misplaced Texan is a cardinal sin.
My boss completely cracked up and when I showed up at work, everyone made fun of me for the rest of the day.
Which brings me to English lesson number 2:
Make sure you use the correct word in a sentance.
I was at work the other day completely starving. So I said to my co-workers, "I'm so hungry, I feel emancipated!!"
I'm sure being hungry might lead to someone becoming free. But in the end emancipated and emaciated are not the same.
I'll learn English one of these days. I guess today's just not my day.
.... And tommorrow's not looking to good either.
