LOVE your posts!!! *:-)


In the UK we also call it Nike (rhyming with Mike)
We also pronounce Adidas (with a short "e" sound in the middle like the "i" in the word "did" rather than pronounced "Adeedas" as in Run-DMC's "My Adidas".
So in the UK it sounds like "Adi-Dass".
We also pronounce "Puma" like "Pewma", not the American way of "Pooma".

Shabbat Shalom


It's great to laugh and be inspired at the same time;))


Thank you so much, Angela! Shabbat Shalom!


Londonmale, that's hysterical! I have a friend from England who lives here, and I remember the first time she said "Adidas" I couldn't, for the life of me, understand what she was saying. You really say Pewma??
Shabbat Shalom!


Thanks so much, RB! Shabbat Shalom!


Are you really a granddaughter of Albert Einstein?


@anon, No, but I am a granddaughter of Hacham Adballah Somech of Baghdad! He was the teacher of the Ben Ish Chai and the gadol hador in Baghdad. And, of course, I didn't know this until a few years ago when my grandfather passed away and my mother found papers that linked us together. Crazy!
