Pasgetti is easier for kids to say when they're younger. I remember my sister using it when she was little. I've not heard Sammich used here, though.

What was that point, flotsam?!

There is a chain of family restaurants named P'sghetti's Pasta and Sandwiches in the St. Louis area.

Huh, I thought words like 'sammich' and 'psghetthi evolved from kids saying them because they couldn't say the actual word. Never heard of restaurants with those names. I say 'sammich' just to be funny. My sister literally couldn't pronounce the 'spa', always said 'pisghetti'. To bring in a different word. My brother could never say 'elephant'. It always came out 'eptom'.

Ah. I haven't been to The Bay in years, not since I retired. I guess it's down in the Food Fair.

Wow. That brought back memories!

I've never heard the word Sammich or the different spellings for Spaghetti !!

So either they are "American-isms" or I'm just plain out of touch these days lol

Drac, I agree. I could be wrong, but I don't think there are too many other countries that play with the English language the way American's do.

From a child. yes. I'm just a bit anal when it comes to "correct" grammar!

I'm terrible about "correct" grammar too. Anything used incorrectly is like fingernails down a blackboard to me! But I'm also good with some slang and regional differences. I was quite surprised when Ana found out that sammich is slang used back in the 1940's!

So all this talk of a sammich is making me hungry !! lol

One of my simpler favourites would probably be slices of home made bread "top" and "bottom".

With plenty of English mustard on nice quantities of beef sirloin (that I have roasted myself) "between".

Delicious dance

Grammar is not really my thing so I apologize to those who I make cringe.

That does sound good Mad.
