English Class

Way back when I was in high school during an English class our nervous teacher who was new was reading from the text and she read the word "Champagne" as "Cham -pag -ne" :)
The whole class roared with laughter and we were unmanageable for the remainder of the class.

Miss those days...

Reading this reminds me of something similar that happened to me when I was in 7th grade English, which I still remember like yesterday.

At home, my Father would always mispronounce things on purpose. All my life, all I ever heard was my Dad say bo-log-na when it should have been pronouncing baloney.

So in 7th grade English the teacher was having various students read out loud several paragraphs of a book that the class was reading.

So it was my turn, and I think she considered me a very good student, and so she said "OK, go ahead Bruce, read from here to there". So I started reading confidently and a sentence came along that had the word bologna in it, and I never saw it coming. I simply read the sentence and pronounced the word as bo-log-na and kept reading. The ENTIRE class erupted with laughter, and even my teacher was enjoying it. ALL because of my Dad.c
