You don't realize how complicated the English language is until you have to explain it to a 6 year old.
Johnny "Daddy what letter does Spiderman start with?"
Me "Spiderman starts with S. S makes the sss sound like in ssspiderman and sssuperman and sssoda."
Johnny "And cinnamon!"
Me "Well actually cinnamon starts with C. Sometimes C makes a ssss sound like in cinnamon and ceiling, and sometimes it makes a cuh sound like in cup and car."
Johnny "And kite!"
Me "Well actually kite starts with K. K make the cuh sound too like in kite and kitten. Well I guess unless it's a silent K like in knock or knowledge."
Johnny "So sometimes K sounds like N."
Johnny "Does gnat start with N?"
Me "Actually gnat starts with G."
Johnny "I thought G made a guh sound like your name Gabe."
Me "Well yeah usually."
Johhny "My name starts with J like jump, and jar, and giant!"
Me "Well actually giant starts with G."
Johnny "I thought G sounded like N."
Me "umm...yeah..i guess it depends."
Johnny "What's depends start with."
Johnny "Like Dinosaur!"
Me "That's right!"
Johnny "I like Pterodactyl's and Pterodactyl makes the Tu sound so it starts with T!"
Me "Wow..uh actually Pterodactyl starts with P. It's a silent P I'm not really sure why it's spelled like that."
Johnny "They just spell dinosaur names funny?"
Me "Yeah I guess so."
Johnny "So does Tyrannosaurus Rex start with P too?"
Me "(sigh) well................no. P is kind of a funny letter cause usually it sounds like puh like puppy, sometimes it's silent like Pterodactyl, and when its PH it sounds like fffff like phone and photograph.
Johnny "And football?"
Me "No that starts with F."
Johnny "Phuck this is complicated."
