As I was reading messages in a group chat, a friend wrote,
"Everyone is scared except the deniers."
Another replied using the same word, saying a denier had blocked them on Twitter.
My brain was trying to figure out what a "denier" is.
I was about to ask and thought, "I'll Google it before embarrassing myself."
I read the definition and laughed out loud.
I was mispronouncing it.
I read it as a "den-ier".
But it's a "deny-er".
You have another funny pronunciation story to add to the family list,
but at least this time you didn't say it out loud!
