Heading to Fripp
We had a fascinating conversation as soon as we hit the road. It started with Biggy correcting me about my earlier post:
Biggy: It's golf CART, by the way--not golf CAR.
TR: You're wrong. Everyone always says golf cart, but it's actually golf car.
Biggy: What even makes you think that?
TR: Someone corrected me once, so I looked it up.
Jack: Someone CORRECTED you for THAT? That's like getting on to someone for saying PIN instead of PEN [emphasis on short e].
Jack: I got in an argument with this kid at school because he heard me say Billy Joel, and he corrected me. He said, "It's Joll." And I said, Jo-w'l.
Biggy: Billy Joll.
Jack: Jo-w'l. Two syllables, but kinda slurred together.
TR: Right. Billy Jo-w'l.
Jack: That's my point.
