    If an auctioneer stuttered, do you think you'd notice?

    My dad was friends with an auctioneer who stuttered! He was perfect when working, but could barely get a sentence out when speaking normally.

    Brought back a flood of memories when I read the OP. I thought my dad was going to die the first time I met him. I was only about 4, and the first thing I said to him was, "You sound like Porky Pig!" He took it in stride, but my dad turned beet red...

    Well, it is shorter than "shortening-a-word-which-is-usually-long-but-which-can-be-cumbersome-to-repeat-several-times-in-a-short-period-of-time"

    Why do you drive on a parkway and park in a driveway?

    Have you also noticed that you put garments in a suitcase & suits in a garment bag?

    Today's my birthday, so this kinda struck a chord with me. The Mick was gone way too soon.

    With reports of snow, higher-higher is losing it's collective mind. So with that in mind:
