Good Morning Groanies,
Stacy and I just got back from Boston. We ventured out east to celebrate my lovely wife's upcoming birthday.
We took in the sights, discovered some interesting facts about our nation's history, and learned how to pronounce a few words in the classic Bostonian dialect.
Here are a few of those words and the wonderful new way we learned to say them...
1. Car - CAAAAAR!
2. Harbor - HAAAAAAABAR!
3. Bar - BAAAAAR!
4. Perfect - PAAAAAARFECT!
5. Uber - UBAAAAAAAR!
6. Green Monster - GREEN MAAAAAANSTAAAAAR!
7. The Boston Tea Party - THAAAA BOSTAAAAAN TEA PAAAAARTY!
8. Are - AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARE!
9. Harvard - HAAAAAAAAVAAAAAAAAAD!
10. Marathon - MARATHAAAAAAAAAAN!
The last one was because, unbeknownst to us, the Boston Marathon was Monday and we had no idea whatsoevAAAAAAAA! You see?! I can't help myself!
