OK, I thought perhaps my ears still needed checking -- Here's a little funny that happened today:
Evan was on the phone with his bestest buddy, Cameron, having a meaningful conversation that sounded like this from my vantage point: "No, YOU say something...... No, YOU say something....."
About 20 minutes in, Evan proceeded to put his hand over the receiver and enter into the following dialog with me:
Evan: Cameron wants to know if I can go to Janice's with him this afternoon.
Evan: Cameron is inviting me to go to Janice's. Is that OK?
Me: I don't know who that is.
Evan: JANICE'S! (because if he says it louder, I'll then realize who we're talking about)
Me: WHO is JANICE?
Evan: It's NOT a person, it's an exercise place! (with sort of a "DUH, mom" tone....)
OK, smart boy -- the correct pronunciation is Genesis (Health Clubs)
