I heard it on the radio -

Remember the old line -

If you read it in the newspaper - it must be true!

Well -

If you hear it on the radio - that must be how you pronounce it!

===

My phone (land-line) has an answering machine attached to it -

It also has caller ID -

Which comes in real handy at times -

It also provides a bit of entertainment -

When the screen reads "Anonymous" -

And my phone tells me that -

"AH - NO - NEE - MUS" is calling -

AND -

The other day I heard it on the radio -

"AH - NO - NEE - MUS" -

Are you kidding me?!?!?

It's pronounced - "UH - NON - UH - MUS"

Someone needs to learn how to use a dictionary -

And stop taking pronunciation lessons from her phone -

But I heard it on the radio -

So that MUST be how you pronounce it - ;))



Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

  2. I am going crazy! Blogger has finally gotten around to messing with me. How could they change everything so completely? I'll bet you can hear me swearing an ocean away and I don't do it out loud.I'll bet some right-hander thought this one up!

  3. Sue - Guess that means it is truly world-wide - and not just limited to the USA - and that's sad! We have TV shows here with characters getting phrases wrong and sounding just plain silly to me. Maybe if the writers actually READ more than their phones - they might be better edumacated! ;))

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
