  • LOL-firefighter. I can't ever say that word. I can say fire, and I can say fighter, but if I put it together, it comes out as firefire. Wonderful huh?

  • Antenna. I don't know why but I can't pronounce it right but I can't. I try to never say it, my husband still has no idea after 5 years.

  • the and ask mostly. I've struggled with it my whole life and use to be much worse; I have to calm down when I say them bc i end up saying da and ass. lol Also, instead of saying memorize I always want to say remeberize I don't know why but it always comes out that way.

  • wasp and wasps. It comes out as waps or wap-ses, isn't that a racist term? I think it is. So I try not to say wasp, I just say bee and let people correct me.
