POH-tuh-bull

This one’s been driving me crazy all week.

Since Katrina, quite a few people on the news have been talking about water that you are unable to drink – water that is not potable.

Every single person has pronounced it PAH-tuh-bull. That’s not right – it’s POH-tuh-bull.

Granted, it’s a stupid word. Why not just say undrinkable? Regardless, if you’re going to use the damn word, use it correctly.

Double granted, I’m glad that I’m not going through what they’re going through, thus allowing me the luxury of whining about words.

I need a drink.
