OYR AID STA SHT = IT’S HARD TO SAY
Good Morning, Everyone! 🗣 WHAT DID YOU “JAY”? 🗣
🎶 It’s NEVER EASY, and it’s never clear…Who’s to navigate and who’s to steer…So you flounder, drifting ever near the rocks… You do your best to keep your hand in play…And try to keep those lonesome blues at bay…You think you’re winning but it’s HARD TO SAY sometime..🎶. “Hard to Say” – Dan Fogelberg (with Glenn Frey) 1981
🗣While walking through the airport, the conversation dwells,
On whether or not language is gonna be a tell…
The FOYER-like walkway is clear, a sign is up ahead…
That welcomes them to Reykjavik…but just how is that read?
I doubt there’d be a STIGMA, if tourists got it wrong…
No SHIFTY looks be given…they still would get along
No law says they must talk the talk, they’re free not to ABIDE,
it’s not an easy word to say…off the tongue it don’t glide
I’m sure they need not worry…and just enjoy their stay…
A Capital idea I think…but then…IT’S HARD TO SAY!🗣
Todays’ words are giving us a split decision. While they’re all ones we’ve visited before, two of them are doing that double-duty thing. We have DEBIA showing up on 03/10/15, and GITAMS on 10/10/18.FOYER seen last year, goes back the farthest, to 02/22/10, while SHIFTY, also seen last year, snuck in on 04/02/12. And it’s ABIDE that comes in as our newest entry, as of 03/01/19. But it was FOYER that caused a bit of turbulence this morning, because two of the Early Birds attacked it as Forey, and were pronouncing it as Foray. It got a little dICEy there for a moment too…until I had to step in and say…”I VOWEL toss you guys out of the group if you don’t stop tripping”…It was totally ridicjulous...Anyway, that concludes our word portion for today…and now let’s travel over to our cartoon…
Landing at REYKJAVIK, the capital city of Iceland, and walking through the terminal of the REYKJAVIK Airport, we overhear todays’ featured couple discussing the proper way to pronounce the Capital city. And I’m wondering if this is their first trip to Iceland, since the man is questioning the “J”, while the woman is saying that she never pronounces it the same way twice. I guess we can say she’s got a terminal case of mispronunciation…But the truth is, the Icelandic language is ranked one of the hardest languages for English speaking people to learn…So in answer to our question? IT’S HARD TO SAY, period! And not just the Capital!
And as far as eye candy goes? What we see is what we get. A flight information board can be seen off to the right. There’s another couple, walking in the opposite direction of our main characters, while a man with a child is silhouetted in black against the window looking out onto the apron. And a plane can be seen departing, while the tail end of another is visible upon the ground. But that’s all there is to carry on about this morning…So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…And let’s all hear it for Google Translate…🗣🙋🏻♀️
