Subject: Drawrings

My business partner is an art therapist; when she gets an art therapy

group together, she has us do "drawrings." The only other time I've heard

of this pronunciation(and she has other linguistic ideosyncrasies that the

locals here have a hard time understanding)is on a Saturday Night Live

sketch about a little British boy named Simon who "likes to do drawrings."

My business partner lived in NYC for the first forty-odd years of her life,

and has since lived in Seattle and several locations in Arizona before com-

ing to Vermont. Any idea if this is a regional idiosyncracy from anywhere,

or is it just her?
