Well said!  Being an avid reader as child, I knew the correct usage and
meaning of written words, but not necessarily the aural expression.  Once
took much teasing for using the word 'epitome' vocally.  Didn't mark me for
life, tho.  Still use them occasionally without checking pronunciation
according to Webster.  The trick is simply to use a work no one else knows
how to pronounce.   Everything I speak comes out Texan anyway.

donald@eastland.net......where the centerfold pictures are good news.  If
the arilbreds I planted don't slow down their current rate of growth, the
pictures are likely to be the only arilbred blooms I'll see this year.
