Four children, three states, four mortgages, 427 bouts of stomach viruses and even more episodes of tearfully bad hair coloring (mine, not Hubs)…and I think my marriage may have finally encountered the deal-breaker*:
Is the word "thorough" pronounced THUR-oh or THUR-uh?
(And no, do not tell me how the dictionary says to say it. Tell me how you say it. And no, I won’t tell you which one is mine and which one is Hubs’, except to tell you that mine is the right one.)
*I jest, of course. We are absolutely, totally, geekily, happily, grammatically in love. There are no deal-breakers in this marriage. Though if there were one, it would probably be related to bad pronunciation. I’m just sayin’.
