Last Sunday I was sitting doing some cross-stitching and listening to Christmas music. One particular song reminded me of a conversation my mom and I had when I was a wee lass.
Mom liked to relate that one day, out of the blue, I asked her where was Historine. It took us a couple of minutes of back and forth conversation for her to figure out exactly what I was asking.
Growing up during the holiday time of year, the radio in our kitchen frequently played various Christmas songs and one I liked (as I'm sure lots of kids still do . . . and maybe adults also) was "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer."
In my mind, at that time, I always heard the line " . . . you'll go down in history" as " . . . you'll go down in Historine." Therefore, my questioning was as to where good old Rudolph ended up. Where the heck was "Historine?"
What are some of the misunderstandings of sayings or incorrect pronunciations of words you remember having as a child?
