"It's always nice to meet a fan."



Last month at the Shepherds' Conference, I had the pleasure of meeting some of my former readers. I know that they used to be readers because I met more than ten people, and I haven't had ten readers in a while.

As nice as it is to meet someone who appreciates what you do, I must say I was a little surprised to find that even my most loyal readers don't know how to pronounciate my name. I've heard "Pec-a-DEE-yo", "Pec-a-de-DIL-a", and even "Pico de gallo".

It's really not that hard. Pecadillo is pronounced "Pec-a-DILL-o." Rhymes with "armadillo".

pec·a·dil·lo (pëk’ëdïl’õ) n., pl. pec·a·dil·loes or pec·ca·dil·los. 1. A small sin or fault. 2. Offensive to the senses; revolting. 3. Generally marked by stupidity and uselessness; typically carries out the remainder of existence in parents' basement. 4. Frightens children.

The picture you used here is just too close to this link so I figured I must post it for your scrolling pleasure.

Enjoy!

So if one of the definition of "Pecadillo" involves a person living in their parents basement (your parents have a basement!?) could that definition be expanded to include those individuals who are always wearing big, loose fitting sweat pants and a "Dokken" concert shirt when ever you see them?

Curious,
Fred

What, C-Crest doesn't count? Well, then I guess just the one.

Thanks for the clarification... I figured it was pronounced like Napoleon Dynamite... "HEY NAP-o-LEE-on, come get yer Pic-a-DILLER"

I hope things are going well for you. I'll be back to check in with next month's exciting blog article. :-) (speaking of that, I better post my monthly article...)
