I said betta was "bedda" (like the opposite of worse, around here) and beta (like 2nd Greek alphabet letter) is "bay-dah." This IS correct!

Okay, your way is betta than mine, Toirtis...

Wait, 'round here they would say "mo betta"

(Ahm Suthern so we say "bedda" but luckily my drawl does not come through cyberspace). I am prepared to be teased when I join the AA members in NYC next weekend.

Actually, my 7 year-old daughter is nearly as bad, she sounds just like an Irish kid saying "Dese", "Dat", and "Doze" instead of "These", "That" and "Those".
