My Son Thought This Story Was Hilarious

Today in my son’s class they were talking about the “sh” sound in words in honor of George WaSHington, and if your first thought of an “sh” word was a less polite example, well . . . as much as I’d like to harass you about that, I don’t really have the right since that’s usually how my mind works too.

But in this particular case, my first thought was “warsh,” as in “It’s time to warsh the dishes.”

You see when I was about my son’s age, I was adamant that “wash” was spelled with an “r,” and nothing my teachers said would budge me on this.  As I recall the way it was told to me, eventually they called my mother and asked her where I might have gotten this idea from.

Suffice it to say that from that day forward Mom always made a special point to say that she was going wash things around the house even though prior to that she had “warshed” things her entire life.
