Well that's pretty much a standard pronunciation here, so that I'm used to. But every time I hear that woman say pahn I wonder if it's a natural accent or an affectation to soften the "a." I don't trust her.

The Always Pan annoys me to no end. From the way the inventor (inventor?) pronounces it (pahn) to the overhyped sales pitch, it just grates on my nerves. It's a $150 frying pan that doesn't do anything different than a $25 frying pan except maybe swell the ego of those who buy it. But every pan with a lid can fry, steam, boil, saute, whatever.

Aldi just started selling their own version...the Awesome Pan. You don't get the special spatula, but you get the same ceramic coating and it's even a tad bigger. $25.

How early in Summer? By June it can be sweltering. Like don't go out after 10am sweltering. 95% humidity and 90+ degrees. And June is the start of rainy season. And when the Caribbean trade winds die down. So it's hot, still and very sticky. July and August just no.

This was a blast. Here are the newsworthy moments in the life of young BK:
1962: Was "miniature bridegroom" at a cousin's wedding. Miniature bridegroom? WTF?
1965: My cub scout den has a "Mexican Theme" program with hat dance, bull fight and piñata party. I played the part of the bull.
1969: Given an award for "social events" at my parochial school graduation. The class was "consecrated to the Sacred Heart."
1971: Police blotter reports that my beloved 8 track player was stolen from the family car, thanks to my father not locking the door. NOT MY 8-TRACK!! I won that thing in a raffle.

That's Sister Mary Julita, my 8th grade teacher. She used to scream at us about the evils of a sick society while projecting spittle from her mouth. She was awful, but then they all were. I'm still friends with the girl in the picture. We met in kindergarten. A 61 year friendship.
