Words that you never get right?? Apparently for me it's Chic.

I swear, when I see it, my first thought is (pronunciation) [sheek], but my sister and BFF say that it's both [sheek] and [chick - as in slang for girl]

Normally I don't have issue with words, they are my friends, LOL....but this one is driving me nuts because I think I'm right.

Is there a word or spelling of one that causes you to pause every time you read or write it?
