When I was much, much younger my adopted grandfather put a hot coal and a piece of gold in front of me to see which one I'd take. He had this fear that I'd try and take power from him. And though I was reaching for the shiny piece of goodness, a mystical hand pushed it towards the coal, as a way to protect me from almost certain death. Being a toddler, I put it in my mouth. And to this day, I stutter and use my cousin as my mouthpiece.

What the hell was that from?


Not really a stutter, but funny speech problems in a friend of mine.

Dude I was in the Navy with named Kirtley was born deaf. I mean, born without any hearing, so he learned to talk int he very muddled, deaf speak sort of way. They did a surgery on him when he was like 4 or 5 and all of a sudden he had perfect hearing, but still had one hell of a fucked up speech impediment.

Fast forward to 16-17 he says fuck the speech therapy, he's good where he's at now, and he went on with his life. When I say this man had a lisp... That's like saying Anthony enjoys a firearm every now and again.

So of course his nickname on our ship was Skirtley.

I work with a guy that has a real bad st st st stutter. I have never acknowledged it, and he is a great guy. I think asking him about it would offend him.
