A blog detailing our adventure as Americans living in Canada. It started out so innocently.
It’s been pointed out to me that I’ve misspelled ‘About’. It was intentional. It’s an American misperception that Canadians pronounce the word ‘about’ as ‘aboot’. They don’t. At least not any Canadians I’ve met so far. But many Canadians do say ‘aboat’.
At least that’s what it sounds like to my ears and it makes me giggle darn near every time. Americans pronounce the word ‘abowt’ like the ‘ou’ in ‘ouch’. Ken and I made this observation after we’d been here no terribly long and I found this blog talking about the same thing.
And don’t get me started on ‘pasta’.
