"I'm VERY tired of reading the word VERY," my fourth grade teacher would say, "To the word graveyard!" And with that, she'd bury another word in the tiny graveyard at the back of our classroom.
I have a speech impediment. It is not a lisp, or a stutter, or a habit of swallowing letters or softening r's into aaahr's. I have a problem that can best be described as Angela Chase Syndrome.
