Twisty Tongue Twisters


I’m participating  in Positively Appealing’s “Tuesday Tongue Twister” tag where she gives out a new theme for a tongue twister on the first Tuesday of each month. Check it out, and tag yours with #ThToTwTu if you participate.

This month’s theme is lemons/lemonade. I slur my words anyway, so I have a problem speaking tongue twisters… but I can make one perhaps!

Life lent me lemons and I laboured ladelling lemonade laden with the lemons life lent laboriously to me.

Can you say it fast 5 times? If you can, I’ve probably failed!

      Thanks! Hope I could get you to stumble on your own tongue a bit!

      It’s not, but you should know I admire your command of your own tongue! I’ve always been the worst at tongue twisters, perhaps I should try real life twister 😰

        I fail at most Bengali tongue twisters but if it’s in Hindi or English, I seem to do good. And oh you shouldn’t try a real life twister because then you won’t be in Kansas any more 🙂 (not that you are, but..)

          Since I don’t speak Bengali I can’t say about that, but I haven’t heard many in Hindi either! Perhaps the chandu ke chacha one lol. What’s the Kansas reference? 😅

            You are making me feel old 🙁 Dorothy says that in Wizard of Oz. And I was referring to the Chandu ke Chacha too.

              I never really read Wizard of Oz 😂 I caught up with many childhood classics when I was a bit older since we didn’t buy many books when I was a little kid, missed that though!

                Oh may be it isn’t in the book. I got that from the original 1939 movie. Dorothy gets swept up in Tornedo and wakes up in Oz. Walks outside and says to her dog,” Toto I’ve a feeling we are not in Kansas anymore”. I skipped childhood classics myself to straight to adult section. But I’m rereading all the comica I missed 🙂

                  Oh I haven’t watched that, perhaps I will someday. I read stuff like Alice in Wonderland and all in my mid-teenage years, it’s never too late!
