Hello, you all. I would also appreciate you would use the tag prfmchallenge for your challenge thingy.
I am afraid I have no interest on finding out what was the first song you heard of perfume. Lets keep the tag out of personal entries or slice-of-life kind of post as much as possible.
Thank you for reading!

YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW MANY WORDS I’VE FUCKED UP
I love running into other people who mispronounce big words because I know I’ve found a fellow autodidact.
don’t ask me about the first time I said the word omnipotent. Just don’t ask.
Mine was eunuch.
Mine was abyss
(It took reading Shelley’s completely implausible and yet perfect rhyme scheme to figure it out, not that I even remember what poem it was in now …)
I also had a grandfather who was the world’s biggest troll and loved to misdirect people for his own amusement. “Ennui,” he’d tell me, sounding it out slowly. “Four syllables. It’s French.” (And no, it was no accident. He knew full well, I know he did.) And I’d go back to my book, feeling that much smarter, until later—sometimes years later—I’d stumble across the correct pronunciation.
Even now, years and years after his death, I’m still stumbling into words I thought I knew how to say and really didn’t, and every time I can’t help but laugh and think Grandad, you ass.
I ave spent so many word flub days with this word
schedule, sake, piece, character, grind…
it really didn’t help i learned most of my early english vocab reading translated manga xD
