You know I love a scroll through TikTok. Well, I came across this video and I couldn't stop laughing. It's been added to my cheering up playlist.

There are words that many of us find difficult to pronounce. I keep saying post-humorously when I mean to say posthumously...

What do you find hard to pronounce?

    I can't say the word "legal" properly without making a sound before the first "L". So it often sounds like I'm saying "illegal". So now I have got to the point where will use a double negative and say "it's not illegal" when I mean to say "it's legal".

    I use to have a problem saying 'Squirrel', not so much these days. 

    These days random words that I've never used pop into my head and then I say them, a bit worrying.  :o  

    News presenters are shocking these days. They don't speak words correctly, it's all rushed.

    I know it's horrible! Hubby and I often look at each other and say "Did she... was that... how .... !!!"
