Only…have…seconds… Must…be…precise…

This morning I was listening to Aisha Tyler on the Adam Carolla Podcast. Twice she said “aphorism” with a long ‘a’. I had always pronounced it with the short ‘a’ and became concerned that I had been mispronouncing it for years.

I couldn’t stand it.

So I interrupted my workout to dash into the house and check with Dictionary. I was right on this one. (She got me on “halcyon”, though.)

I’m such a word nerd.
