An uncle of mine used to substitute the word "wheelbarrow" for any long words that he couldn't pronounce. He once told me "I did it once when I was doing the reading in church and nobody noticed"

"Oh, Basil, you did no such thing!" cried my aunt.

"Well then. You didn't notice either!

John, great use for the word 'wheelbarrow' - I will certainly pass it on to liturgy readers who view with dismay some of the words in the Old Testament!!

This is such a great example of the poetry in the everyday -- in life. I laughed at your first comment too --
