You say it with an R, not a W

To my parents:

I want to thank you for making me take speech therapy from when I was three to when I was ten. At the time, I thought it sucked. But today, I was watching MTV’s TV show “Made” where this girl had a horrible speech problem and I was like “Woo hoo! That’s not me!”

    I saw that episode of Made the other day, and I felt sad for the girl. But also—and this is proof of how mean I am—I laughed a couple of times. I’m sorry, I really am, and I didn’t think any less of her because of the impediment. But when you hear someone talking for a HOUR like that, it’s hard not to find it a little funny, right? Or am I really that evil?

    I too caught the episode with the giwl that couldnt say hew raaahs. I too felt bad, but only for a minute or two when I started to laugh and cringe every time she said something.

    Hey, I went to speech therapy when I was in 3rd grade. I got my tongue clipped because it didn’t move enough or something. It was me and another little boy in speech therapy, and I’d always beat him at Concentration. My mom told me that wasn’t nice to always win, so I had to let him win every once in awhile. It wasn’t my fault he was dumb AND couldn’t talk correctly.
