Nate and I spent a fun evening at his Dad’s house up in Lancaster. Their water filter was broken so we went out to buy some jugs of water at Turkey Hill. On the way back to his Dad’s house Nate was goofing off in the car and shaking his hand like he had Parkinson’s disease. I said to be technical he was afflicted by pseudo-Parkinson’s. Nate asked me to repeat what I said, I replied he would have PSEUDO Parkinson’s Disease and went into the definition of it only to be cut off. He told me I was mispronouncing “pseudo”. That’s crazy, I’ve used this term a million times and have always pronounced it the same way. Hell bent of finding the right answer we arrived at the Carr household and dug out the dictionary. I was pronouncing it FA-SUE-DO. Nathan insisted that the correct pronunciation was SUE-DO. We didn’t want to taint our mediator’s minds so we wrote the word PSEUDO on a notepad and asked Nathan’s Dad to pronounce the term to settle our dispute. He looked puzzled like he didn’t know the word and came up with the best response, SUEDE-OH. I said, this isn’t a Spanish word; it’s a real word. Luckily Lisa stepped in and solved the mystery. The p is silent and I have been talking like a fool for my entire life. Good thing I never used the term in front of instructors during nursing school.
