Please inform Mr. Szymborski that the words “pitcher” and “picture” should not be pronounced identically. This episode was otherwise enjoyable.

Believe it or not, I have been specifically criticized for this in the past. Since this is the second time I’ve heard this specific issue of me swallowing the c in picture, I will try and be more cognizant of it in the future.

Though also be thankful I don’t pronounce it like some other people with Baltimore do: pixture.
