I’ve been wanting to tell y’all about this for so long but I didn’t know how to type it out. It’s one of those stories that’s better if you hear my sweet voice tell it. Ha! But I’ll give it a go and then post the audio next. So bear/bare? with me as I will have to spell some things out phonetically.
One afternoon not too long ago CSP & I went out to run some errands and get dinner. When we were in the car he noticed what I was wearing, which was a coral/ light orange colored top. Then this happened:
Me: I don’t look like a pumpkin.
CSP: Too bad your name’s not PenAH Lope or you’d be PenahLOPE the pumpkin!
Big grin from CSP, silence from me while my wheels turned in my brain.
Me: PenAHLOPE? What’s PenAHLOPE?
CSP: You know, Penahlope, the girls’ name. You’re Penahlope the pumpkin!
Me: Do you mean Penelope? said PenELLOHPEE
CSP: What? No! What’s PenELLOHPEE? It’s Penahlope!
Me: WHO do you know named Penahlope?
CSP: Well, no one because it’s an old fashioned name. But it’s sure not Pen ELL OH PEE! (he sounded it out like he was speaking a foreign language).
Me: (am dying laughing by now) Honey, it’s pronounced Penellohpee! Not Penahlope!
CSP: No, you’re wrong. You’re trying to trick me and you can’t. It’s Penahlope! Hello! They don’t call them CAN AL OH PEES!
