Here, there and everywhere.

May 31st, 2008 · No Comments

My partner is from New Zealand. Teasing each other with our pronunciation is one of our favourite past times. Julian thinks that the words ‘here’ and ‘there’ rhyme. His logic for this is that the Beatles came up with the song ‘Here, there and everywhere ‘ (bless his little cotton socks). In Julian’s defence this song title does in fact rhyme. However what Julian fails to understand is that this is because ‘there’ and ‘where’ are the two rhyming words in this sentence.

A reasonable person like myself would conclude that if you remove the word ‘where’ out of the sentence, the words ‘here’ and ‘there’ do not actually rhyme.

So if you thought I was a fan of the Beatles then you were wrong – I am just a person that likes to pick on my partner’s pronunciation and give him no opportunity to defend himself.

Good, now that I have that off my chest and you all know that I am officially insane I can move onto the business side of blogging.
