Um, I am not sure which one it is, but apparently there is an extra word in this sentence -- "Probably, because I now that..." OR... wait a minute! Is that just "know" with the 'k' missing? (Duh. I'll be alright... LOL!)

Fun post. I'm glad I didn't miss it. :))

Sasha,

What!!?? Americans? Of any sort-- snobbish?? No! You jest.

Hehe

We are a wickedly pampered and spoiled bunch, aren't we? (But I like it a great deal. )

This post was entertaining and humorous. You're always fun. I don't know how you do it. Haha!

I did see some nits, though. We can pretend I'm holding a magnifying glass here for you:
1.) We North (Americans) are rather snobbish

2.) Probably, because I now that I have a new recliner.
--> Probably because I now have that new recliner.

3.) Yesterday I saw two boxers bounce dancing in the ring and, at the exact same time, wielded a powerful strike at the other
--> Yesterday, I saw two boxers bounce-dancing in the ring and, and at the exact same time, wield powerful strikes at each other.
--> (two boxers/two strikes)

4.) The punch(es) connected and both were knocked
--> Both punches connected and each was knocked out.
--> Each punch connected and both were knocked out.

You labeled some of those video titles. I know what you mean. America's Funniest Home Videos does that. It always freaks me out. I KNOW if I ever appeared on National TV it would be for something like a 10-sec video on the 'world's most psycho grandmother', etc. Something for the scrap book for sure. Ugh.
Bleh. Aggggh.

Annnnyyway! You did good. As always. And made me smile. Thank you!

I don't think I've ever heard WIFI or SyFy ever pronounced that way. I get mad when people say Wesconsin...it's WISCONSIN! It makes me so mad. And have you ever watched youtube? They have bad dad joke competitions. They are hysterical! Oh and you can watch Funniest Home Vidoes, full episodes! I love all of that stuff. It's the greatest.

What a fun rant, Sasha. I enjoyed reading it. I can understand the hilarity resulting from the mispronunciations there. You did a great job with your info in this rant. I really liked the way you wrote about the air conditioner in comparing it to a tornado. Respectfully with Love, Jan

May I suggest:

We North Amerians [ Americans ] are rather snobbish about how we prefer certain words or phrases be pronounced.

I don't even own a sweater. In 2014 [add comma after 2014 ] .

    Augustin is a dear friend I met when I first moved to Mazatlan.

    My days are quite repetitive, I wake late, eat breakfast, go for a short walk then plop down in my new chair and watch silly television programs.

This was a laugh and a great post. Reminded me of the silly video's people share of the vulgarity in clothing some wear to Walmart or whatever. I dunno why I thought of that as I read your post? Now just two spags today. We seldom(space)get
crazie[i]st dance...you fixed this the next time you posted the word

Glad to see Bob Hartson (Mastery) doing a review for me today I have been worried about him.

    There are some crazy videos that people share online. I have been worried about Mastery too. It is good to have him back.

Thanks for posting! I always like knowing that you are doing well and here I can almost hear your laugh. And laughter is good medicine. I never twitter either.

"We seldomget winter." (seldom get)
"crazieist dance" (craziest)

Wilted a punch, Okay, you know we have the same problems, In some parts of the south we eat pee-cans not pakans, In other parts of the country, they drop letters here and there. If you want comedy watch the impeachment.
