Because at the present moment, I hear my family in the other room arguing about how to say 'crayon' I decided it was a good excuse to post my thoughts.
You see, I have a three year old sister and my mom has ruined her chances of ever saying 'crayon' the correct way. They both say it 'crown', which is wrong in so many ways. A CRAY-ON is not by an means a crown. They are completely different things. You do not wear a CRAY-ON on your head, and the Queen of England not given a CRAY-ON to mark her royalty. Now, I'm very well aware that in the English language not a whole lot of our words make sense as to how they sound if you look at how they're spelled. However, crayon is a word that makes perfectly good sense. Two syllables that sound exactly as they should. CRAY-ON.
It's CRAY-ON people, not crown. CRAY-ON.
(this reminds me a lot of the "Ban the Banana" post I did a while back...)
With eternal love and blessings,
