Things Being Ogled

Bosslady had to run an errand at the bike shop today. Shabaz Muffalet told her to not ogle the hot young things that change your tires and generally make your bike safe to ride.

Except he said ogle rhyming with toggle. And I said I thought it was ogle rhyming with google.

Which brings me to my deep and abiding love for the interweb and specifically Merriam Webster. Did you know you can listen to the word's pronunciation? Try it for yourself: ogle. Click on the little red speaker icon and you'll find that ogle is actually pronounced OH-gull. Who knew?

Those crafty Merriam Webster folk, that's who.

UPDATE: Shabaz Muffalet's shoes are squeaking again! I am beside myself.


  1. I am with's OH-gull. Or something like that. Not AH-gul. Go online dictionary! It's so fun to come over here to your new "place!" Your photo of yourself is so cute too! :)

  2. i feel like i'm reading my sister's blog - she has a squeeky-shoed coworker too that she is always complaining about ;-)

  3. Thank you for all of the laughs. We love to check out your blog for some much needed comic relief. Hope all is well with you & Cecilia :-)
