TO-MAH-TO


We have telephones, and computers and people carry cellphones and get into fancy cars …. we have Santa Barbara on TV and kitkats in our fridges … we even drink pepsi and coke and speak and write English … but … do ou know what saying to-mah-to juice instead of to-meh-to juice in an American airline can do to your self esteem .. if the person on the other side doesn’t figure out you’re speaking English?
