Response to How You Hear Baby Names Vs. How Kids Hear Them:
I remember being a kid with a name went to school with other kids who had names. Nobody was safe, since kids can make up virtually anything to play on any name. Because of this, I decided to just name my child a noise, kind of like a cross between A fog horn and the sound a cat makes when you step on its tail, so nobody would make fun of her.
Huh huh, it says “TITS,” uh huh huh huh, uh huh huh huh.
Response to What Mispronunciation Annoys You The Most?:
I was at jury duty, and the court officer kept telling us to turn off our “electronical” devices at certain moments. I think I heard him say that about seven times in total, each time more annoying than the next. I guess that is less of a mispronunciation and more making shit up, so the most annoying actual mispronunciation is when my parents ask my daughter if she went “puh-pees” instead of “poopies.” Drives me nuts.

Response to 12 Best Things About Being From Boston:
Modern Pastry, yes. Pizza? Ernesto’s. If they’re still around, that is (I moved out of the North End a while ago). They remember your name, they appreciate their good customers, and the slices are huge and inexpensive. I would take Ernesto’s over anything else in the North End.
