I've tried making pretty sentences with you since I was a wee bairn. I love using little words as much as the "ten-dollar" ones, short lines alongside long, winding phrases.
And then you had to go make an ass outta me.
Nearly 40 years on this Earth and today I learned that "segue" is not pronounced "seeg", but "segway". I'm positive I heard other people say it wrong too. Admit it. Your rules are illogical at best.
What gives? This spelling makes about as much sense as "queue" and "solder". Only you're not throwing pointless extra letters in, you're hiding entire syllables!
Thankfully I only said it in front of my husband and not a prominent speaker on writing craft...that's a different embarrassment for a different day (yesterday, and praise Jesus for my nearly non-existent voice. Oy).
I am mortified! I'm breaking up with you! I'm switching to ASL...I already know one very useful sign. I'm using it right now!
Bah. I need to calm myself down with some music. There's nothing a good fugway won't cure.
