tmttt1: The Jalapeno Dilemma Jul 4, 2018 Includes wisdom from Letterkenny and a few words from Adam Phillips 3 Comments Michael Coady on 10 July 2018 at 8 h 56 min Your monologue reminded me of Hamlet’s lament of “…thinking too precisely on the event..” No doubt your musings will be of interest to a contemporary young audience for whom socializing is as necessary as breathing. However,self-analysis is something one might do after falling into a cave and hearing only the echo of one’s own voice – a very unsatisfying experience. Personally, I would have preferred the writer behind this piece giving me the choice of both pace and inflection. The writing is strong here.

So all these years I have been spelling it and pronouncing it wrong! Wait…what? Backtracking five words from this yet-completed comment and suddenly the verb is what I thought all along – one ‘pronounces’ rather than ‘pronunces’, however one ‘pronunciates’as opposed to ‘pronounciates’ or are both incorrect? I’ve been Jalapeno-bombing myself all along.. Hot-pepper stories aside, I enjoyed every aspect of this podcast and for me this week’s topic was a blend of ‘Grammar Girl’ meets ‘Philosophize This’ podcasts, both which I thoroughly enjoy. Your conclusion of what you said in the end is less important to me than how you derived your decision and the personal conflicts with the technical pronunciation. I enjoyed the production and informal delivery, this style just makes it very relatable – also the simplicity of it gives it a bit more sophistication somehow. However, it would have been “next-level shit” if you were able to record part of the conversation live during that time and use samples of it into this podcast. For example, if you replaced the recanting of your decision with the actual clip of said conversation and story to Lori and her friends that would been perfect! But instead, I’m satisfied that you were able to clearly pronounce ‘pronunciation’ as nun rather than noun in the end. Something I clearly have been doing wrong all my life.
