i stand corrected

as usual.

So I have this sister.
Her name is Victoria.
She's a great sister.
Super witty.
A great mother.
Very loyal to her friends and family.
A hard worker.
She makes cute kids.
Not afraid to speak her mind in one of the rare truest sense.
Great at correcting poor spelling.
...and grammer.
She says I've become American-ized. Nice.
I now say things like INsureance while my Canadian family says inSUREance.
I say Soda, they say Pop.
I say Restrooms, they say Washrooms.
I say Y'all, they say....not y'all.
I say endure (enDERe) they say endure (enDURe)

She likes to point these things out in the only Victoria way.
Oh Home Sweet Home.

I know you can't help yourslef Vic and I love you all the more for your little quirks. But look out for that day that I catch you in a slip because oh great will be the day that the corrected will get to correct the corrector.

Happy Birthday!!! 28 never looked so good ;o)

One important question for you. Do you say couch, sofa or chesterfield? LOL!

Enjoy the rest of your visit.

Nothing wrong with being American-ized! And for the record, I don't say y'all (ever) and I do say enDURe. Maybe we're not really all that different.
