I’ve heard of similar stuff happening from my own folks. I can’t remember if it was myself or my brother that had troubles with “frog”. The other one had trouble with “truck”. Always had the same result as this kid.
Even now, they still manage to laugh about it. I can now see where they see the humor.
my brother would have trouble with truck and he would always point one out when they were in public! needless to say they had fun explaining to people that he wasn’t calling them a big *uck but pointing out the large truck behind them
