  1. I know! And what is the deal with “flammable” and “inflammable”?


    • I have to admit, I’ve never understood that…


  2. Can you please add a quotation mark at the beginning of “inflammable”? It is going to drive me nuts!


    • No problem 🙂


      • Thank you!


  3. Hilarious 😀 I’ve always wondered why the fear of long words is called hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia. It seems cruel, just like the spelling of “phonetic”.


    • I’ve never heard that. Very funny!
      I’m going to remember it for our next family scrabble night… 🙂
