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 -


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 -

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!

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! ;))
