She also told them that I know every black person that she went to school with. Really?!?! SHUSH IT!
Am I the only wondering what the words are?

I can't say "buck" or "frog" or "cemetery." (I blame my mother who is Irish.)
Fruit, which sounds like fute and couch, so I say sofa

I drove a Volvo for a few yrs while I was married. And my exhusband couldn't pronounce it to save his life! So it was always on the phone, "my wife has a three year old vulva..." or "you'll see my wife's navy vulva parked outside" Or to me, "you need to service that vulva before it stops running..." It was so embarrassing.
