    I can’t think of anything specific, but I can say that in the right circumstances my mouth doesn’t say what my brain is telling it to. It comes out all gibberish! Heck, maybe a different language. I’ve studied Spanish, French, and Italian, and my little brother had his own language for a long time when he was a toddler, maybe it’s a mix of those. lol

    Oh my goodness! That is adorable!! For some reason, I have trouble saying spaghetti at times. Don’t know why, and it usually just happened when I was a kid, but sometimes now I have trouble, lol.

    I have trouble saying laparoscopy. My tongue cannot wrap around that word. I can’t say amigurumi either. The animals are so cute. Thank you for bringing happiness to the knitting and crochet world.

    Lots of them. The one that comes to mind is that time I tried to order a croque monsieur. French can be hard when you have a heavy Okie accent. ?

    Mine is a phrase, from when I was working: hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. Not a phrase you ever want to have reason to say!

    When I was younger it was “cinnamon” (I said cimma – nun) and “hors d’oeuvres.” Horse duvers do NOT sound appetizing!

    Most of life I always feel a step or to behind unless I am talking at someone I never sure if they are listening.

    My favorite tongue tie was my sister’s word for today’s gift card—we go back before ‘card’ and she would call it a gift cer-ticket-it. To this day I still love that made up word!!

    “Epitome” and “indicted” — I can pronounce them just fine in conversation, but when i read them, I also pronounce them phonetically at first.

    When I saw the Christmas bunting package lying there in the video, I thought it was cute. I actually squealed a little when you said it was today’s giveaway! I hope amigurumi is within my very amateurish crochet skills. 🙂
