llamas...

Quick question...

How do you pronounce the word "llama"??

Do you say it the same way you say the word lamb or do you say it with a laaaa (as in do, re, mi, fa, so, LA, ti...)

I was shocked to find out this week that apparently I've been saying it wrong all my life (according to my teammates as well as dictionary.com) and I've been saying it like "lamb"... Now I'm curious to see if this is a Canadian thing or if I'm just crazy! (no witty comments allowed on that one because I know you've got one!)

Please comment and clear this up for me!

I've still got plently of pictures and stories to post, as well as my smile list, but they'll be coming soon...

your wrong... just let it go ;)

It's definitely LAH (i.e. the same as lottery), but given your background, I can see why you would have difficulty.

Colby Weinhofer... you said you would never make fun of me for being a Canadian again since you didn't pass your Japanese driver's test....... I think that was a pretty subtle way of making fun of me for being a Canadian! :P

and as for your Bobby Baden... I'm not wrong... just different! :P

i think that's at least the 3rd time today you've called me by my full name! I'm going to start getting 'Robert Michael!' here before long...

Hillary said...

hahaha have I really said it that many times today?! I think I just like the way it sounds together, so it's fun to say :)
Don't worry, I'll save 'Robert Michael' for when you're REALLY in trouble!

I pronounce it as do, re, mi, fa, so, llama, ti, do. AND I passed the Japanese driver's test on the first try, so does my pronunciation get extra points? ;-)

Man, I miss being on the Japan field...

April is cool!

No, you are all wrong.
Except Hill - it is definitely 100%LAMB-A.
No if, ands, buts or LAAAs about it!
And I am always right - because I am smarter than you. Why am I smarter than you? Because I currently have 2 brains, and the rest of you only have one!
The pregnant lady has spoken!

I never knew how much power a prengant woman had, but now I sure do! Thanks for using that power to help me out! :)

Bobby Baden said...

April said...

::backs away nervously from the pregnant lady::

(LOL!)

(And wow, for the first time in my life, someone thinks I'm cool! Whoopee!)
