This post would be so much more effective if I could only roll my rrrrrrs. Sadly, it is not a skill I ever acquired. )-:
Come to think of it, you wouldn’t hear the rolling if I could. There’s just something about the sound of AMBROSIA being rolllllllllllled out with rolling rrrrrrrs that gets to a person. And I’m sure AMPROSIA would sound just as good. (I could never be Scottish. I wonder if they weed out the non-r-rollers when they’re young and ship them to other continents?)
I had a point…
