"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.
