A funny thing happened on the way to the speech pathologist.

So for quite some time, The Geej has had difficulty with the "ir" sound. Heck, who am I kidding. She couldn't even make the "ir" sound, so "bird" was "bohd" and "Earl" was "Ohl" and "girl" was "guh-ohl." But recently, she discovered how to make the "ir" sound with a vengeance. Now she's pronouncing things that should have the "or" sound with all "ir" all the time.

For instance, the if this sentence--"My horse just walked out the door on its way to the store for a corn dog."--were said by the Geej, it would sound like this: "My hearse just walked out of the dir on its way to the stir for a kern dog." It's comedy, people.

The OG used to have that exact same problem. We used to joke that she just had a Brooklyn accent. Oddly enough, the YG had no such problems whatsoever and has always had perfect diction.
