Never make fun of someone who mispronounced a word…


…It means they learned it by reading.

When I was in grade school, we had a read-a-thon, and, naturally, being the nerdy kid that I was, I absolutely had to win the most amount of minutes read. That also meant that I spent an absurd amount of time actually reading. No other kid is going to want to spend 1000 minutes reading in a given month. Except for me.

Throw some Harry Potter my direction, gimme a straw and an ice cold A&W Cream Soda and my fourth grade self was pretty much in heaven.

I’d like to tell you not much has changed, but time sure has a way of flying by and half-read books sit on my shelf, namely, the newest Harry Potter.
