I have mentioned before that my 75 year old mother has a tendency to make slight errors in her pronunciation of certain words.
Usually her terminology is good for a chuckle, but last night at dinner she had me completely stumped when she asked, “Diane, have you seen that HBO movie I told you about yet? The one about that acoustic girl.”
I stared blankly. She continued, “Temple something…”
She replied, “Yes! That’s it.”
“Mom, I think you meant to say autistic.”
Though I suppose it’s entirely possible that Temple played a mean guitar.
