That Thing Again

January 10, 2013

Obama clearly said “think.”

I just can’t let this go.

Those sounds really do blend together. You know, the “k” in think and the “c” in coming. So I suppose, maybe, I could see where somewhere at some point, someone decided maybe they heard thing (like when someone with a cold was speaking). But still, it’s totally ridiculous and incredibly irritating.

I think my favorite part is that they tagged this as “strange news.”

Anyway, I hate to say I told you so, but I told you so.

Just kidding. I love saying I told you so.

    Where I live (midwest, Great Lakes) they always say “thing” but where I grew up near the St. Louis area is was evenly mixed between thing and think… I’ve always liked “think”… makes me feel smart.
