Re: Do you say it right?
 
My Texan husband once publicly disowned me due to the pronunciation of pecan. We were just dating and I was visiting his family in Texas for the first time. I had always heard "pee-can" from my Southeastern relatives, so I ordered a "pee-can waffle" in a waffle house. He loudly said, "SHE'S NOT WITH ME!!!" and made a HUGE scene, which is so totally NOT like him. I was rather upset and it was one of the only times I can ever remember him demeaning me, especially in public.

Note: the correct pronunciation is "peh-cahn" - at least in Texas, where they feel very, very strongly about that. :P

Hahahahahahaha. That made me laugh out loud. That is hilarious!! :giggle:

Well, the demeaning part isn't funny, but just that it was so important to him, he even said that. Gotta love Texas! :)
