    Hammick or Hammock

    My girls think it is funny that I say Hammock . . .

    . . . when everyone else says Hammick.

    My 9 year old has gone as far as to tease me when I start to talk about hammOks, she will interupt me with . . .

    Hammoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooook

    and it is funny as all get out . . .
    . . . and we laugh, and laugh, and laugh .

    Call me what you will . . . but I sleep in a Hammock,
    I rest in a Hammock
    and use my Hammock many times a year . . .

    . . . but never never never do I use, rest, or sleep in a hammick . . .

    Just sayin'

    My gf likes to correct me because I say "Wader" instead of water. I blame it on that she's a woman and likes to be a pain. Thank god their cute right.

    That's good because you have a "hammick reaction".

    I say hammeck. Thanks...now I'm all self conscious about it. I'd say, "that thing I hang between trees or in the living room or in the Suburban and rest in all the time." It's just too long to say. G'nite all. I'm gonna go lay in my hammeck.

    I'm from Louisiana, so whenever I hear people talking about their oil, I jump in and comment on that "awl".

    Similarly, when I hear people say New Orleans, New Orleens, or even New Orlee-ans, I can't help but mention that in New Orleans, it's just pronounced N'awlins.

    My mother-in-law asks me how everything's going with my "hamhock".
    "Pips"
    Mountains have a dreamy way
    Of folding up a noisy day
    In quiet covers, cool and gray.

    Surely, God could have made a better way to sleep.

    Surely, God never did.
