Just a note letting everyone know a new list member has appeared: me.
A word I've nearly always mispronounced (probably not the right term)
is wash. I pronounce it: warsh, the r sound very soft. (Sorry not
familiar with the codes. And wouldn't know how to use them if I were.)
Finally somebody else on the list that can talk good like me! Welcome Hoosier!
You can warsh your fucking socks at my house any month they get dirty
enough to need it.
