Mixing up the words
So if you’ve read my Bunco Babes books, you might remember Pilar Diaz-Rothman. She’s one of my favorite secondary characters. She also butchers phrases and words, much like someone else I know. Not that she’s inspired by my sister. Okay, so she is.
Here’s a conversation I had with my sister the other day:
Carmen: John and I just saw a great movie. The Lone Ranger.
Me: The Lone Ranger? As in High Ho, Silver?
Carmen: What? No, it’s about some Navy Seals. I think.
Me: Oh! You mean Soul Survivor.
Carmen: Yeah! That’s it. (giggles).
Yeah. We were talking about Lone Survivor.
