Lemon-Basil Ricotta Pasta with Squash

In my kinesiology class, we’re learning about “CORE problems.”

One of these is called Serial Order, and it deals a lot with speech. Apparently, there’s this thing called a Spoonerism. This is when you switch two vowels or two consonants.

I am a perfect example of this. When I was little, and sometimes still to this day, I would say “Challen changer” for the channel changer. And my mom never corrected me. She either never noticed or thought it was cute and didn’t want me to stop. And soo.. I never have. Today I normally say “clicker” to avoid the awkward reveal of my speech problem. At least now I know I’m not the only one.
