What the Hec

Last night we were playing Boggle. I am always amazed when my five year old finds words in this game, but he always seems to find something, and usually it is spelled correctly as well.

So last night, he found the word Hec.

Hec, Veev questions. Isn't that a swearword, my oldest pipes in.

My middlest laughs hysterically. Hec isn't a swearword. "What the Heck" is a swearword.

So I counted the point. Who the hec cares if it's spelled incorrectly.

Why "chrono"-- my fair city is pronounced TOE-RON-TOE, but when slurred, it's TRON-O. Got that? There's nothing chronomatic, chrono for short, about it!

Amshinover or under:

#1:I was five years old MANY MANY MOONS ago...

#2: I work as a copy editor: I'd better get my spelling right...or it that write?

Guess you haven't yet caught on to my warped (wharped?) sense of humor yet!

Amshi - you don't have to be five to get your spelling errors forgiven. We forgive yours, and I figure you're at least 8.

And everybody thought vaudeville was dead!

It's here, living in Air Times' comments forum.

I thought Amshi was 103 or 104...and wondered how the heck he's still around commenting/doing his vaudeville shtick on many blogs. Didn't anyone tell HIM vaudeville is dead?

I laughed so hard, my dentures just popped out!

Actually, I'm not 43, I'm 143--it's just that my kids keep me young. (ages 10, 8 and 5 1/2) As for my husband...? Well, he just keeps me!
