:) I went around last night muttering variations, before adding it
to the soup. (Thanks for the culinary reminder, you lot.) I'd
probably have spelled the first syllable "wuss", but that may only
prove how Low is the tone of my Mind!
Completely unrelated, but also about pronunciation, and tickled me:
I borrowed a book from Trinity library the other day, and someone had
written all over the thing. There was a sentence using the word
"obtrusive", and in the margin, the person had defined it for
him/herself as "Trust upon you". Completely Dublin!
