    I got a shot today.
    If it were painful, I would go to bar and drink some tequila.
    But it didn’t painful at all, I ate vegan ramen.

    I understood a little less than nothing, but I am grateful to you for demonstrating something that is very different from what I am used to)

    Yes, but it’s worth moving away from the tourist or business areas and it’s all over. But gestures and a smile have never disappointed me or the locals)

    I can explain that!

    It's due to the Law Of Conservation Of Consonants.

    Whenever someone says a word and leaves out a consonant that should be spoken, a linguistic unbalance is created, and the Universe corrects the unbalance by having someone else insert the missing consonant into a word where it doesn't belong.

    Consider the excellent example you gave - "worsh" for "wash".

    In the Boston area, there is a tendency for people to leave out the "R" sound from many words, such as in the classic phrase "Pahk the cah in Hahvad Yahd" - five missing R sounds in a six word sentence! Those missing R sounds have to go SOMEWHERE, and they wind up in words like "worsh".

    Ironically, the person who pronounces "wash" as "worsh" usually doesn't pronounce "cash" as "corsh".

    And it's not just Boston folks. Some people pronounce "drawer" as "draw", for example.

    See how that works?

    This also explains why a language like French sounds so different than the way it is spelled.

    Udon and Soba are also good noodles.

    That was the first thing that I thought of too. Are you a doctor, pharmacist, or is a family member taking it, or are you just a normal person with a slightly twisted sense of humor?

    I am the latter.

    The first that you listed. But some of us DO have a sense of humor!
