Today, in a restaurant, we ordered "new" selections from the menu. The General Manager stopped by our table and asked how we were enjoying the new selection. I gestured in the air and said, "It couldn't be more perfect--the great Louis Armstrong singing "A KISS TO BUILD A DREAM ON" over the sound system!"
Gerald patted me on the thigh and said, "Sweetheart, I think he was referring to the entrees!"
During further conversation the Manager pronounced "Louis" as "Louie" and I, as an aficionado, mentioned that Louis himself never pronounced his name Louis as "Louie". Somehow, I was even compelled to do an imitation of Louis hissing "Louis" when he sang, "Hello, Dolly, this is LOUISssssssss, Dolly!"
