How do you say "Lilac"?


Kory and I have been having this ongoing debate on how to pronounce the word "Lilac". He says it is "LIE-LACK" and I say it is "LIE-LOCK"...The dictionary says its both. I really don't care, but every time I say LIE-LOCK or talk about them Kory corrects me and says "LIE-LACK". But I am curious what you all think on the subject.

Moving on...I really like the smell of Lilac bushes. It is one of my favorite things about spring and nature, and it reminds me of my childhood house, and my mom. So naturally I was just thrilled when I found out that the mass amount of dead shrubs in our back yard turned into about a dozen really big "Lilac" bushes. We don't intend on keeping all of them because of where they were planted. (right smack in the middle of our yard) But I decided today that I wanted to bring some of them inside. I don't own a single vase, (except for the one I borrowed from my mother in-law that already has flowers in it) so I created one out of a small jar that once held some peanut butter. I cleaned it out and put a ribbon on it! I know right, super creative! I don't know, I thought it was cute...

Who knew Peanut butter jars could be so pretty. Aren't you just Martha Stewart? Oh, and I say lilac both ways....whichever comes out first.

My parents fought about how to pronounce that word for months. I mean like actual yelling went on about it! Rediculous! Anyway, the call them the L-word or something stupid like that now. Whatever keeps them from arguing like the old farts they are, I don't care...

Kat Clark said...

Wait I think I ended that post sounding kind of annoyed but please know it had nothing to do with you. I was just reliving the silliness of my parents. Anyway, I think it is good that you and Kory say it a different way. That way you both have something nice and unique about yourselves to bring to the relationship! Yay!

You should put them in yogurt cups. (read Rainey's newish blog)

Kyle said...

Oh, but it's LIE-LACK. LIE-LOCK sounds british... and you know who's british? Jack the Ripper. What are you some sort of pervo-murderer?

KaSs said...

its lie-lack. Sorry aim.

Keri said...

How funny. I say it Lie-Luck.

Kelli &/or Kyle said...

Keri's totally right. It's Lie-Luck. So you're both wrong. As usual. Feel free to just call me next time and save you both a lot of fighting and silent treatments.

I think I pronounce it more like that as well, I just couldn't find the right way to spell how I was saying it.

Kory said...

Don't let her fool you, there's a definate 'O' in there.
