My GPS

WHITECOLLAR REDNECK
On previous road trips, I've learned that the lady who provides the voice for my GPS system has a hard time pronouncing some pretty basic words, things like "Maryland," "Peoria," and "Square." But for some reason she has absolutely no difficulty with places in Mississippi - and I'm talking about places that your average American would lose two teeth trying to pronounce. She effortlessly guided me through Homochitto, Natchez rolled off her tongue quite naturally, and Doloroso came out just right. Tomorrow I will test her on Tougaloo, and if that doesn't get her maybe Tishomongo will the following day.
