But I can’t help myself. It was the girl’s first day back at school, and I’ve been downright *giddy* in spite of my fatigue. And then earlier I used the word “feud”. I started thinking: Shouldn’t it be F-U-E-D?
No, no. That wouldn’t sound like fyood. It would sound like fooed, as in:
The men fued.
But then if you tried to conjugate the verb it would sound like:
The men had fued.
And of course that lead to this:
Would you care for a sandwich?
And I’ve been guffawing over it ever since.
