Good Wednesday to you all! Do you also sound out Wednesday phonetically with the intention of spelling Wednesday properly? Took me a minute, maybe until my mid 20’s, to spell Wednesday correctly. And to do so, I had to sound it out phonetically over and over again. So much so that I rarely say Wednesday as “Wensday” in my brain. To me, it is now Wed-Nes-Day. How About yall? How did you find your way to Wednesday? Do you spell it out or do you use a short cut and see it as WED?? Let’s chat. Love yall. Thanks for being here. 79 days until opening kickoff. 82 days until our Seattle Seahawks face off in game 1 versus the Los Angeles Rams.
