A matter of pronounciation


Payton's brain is still vacationing on that sunny, tropical island. How do I know this for sure? Read on.......

It is VERY windy in Maryland today. Thinking of my upcoming trip, Payton asked me if it was windy in Chicago? "Yes" I replied. "That's why it's called the 'Windy City'."

"OHHHH" replied Payton. "I thought it was the whine-dy city, like it had lots of curvy streets and roads."

Glad I could clear that up for him.

The origin of the term "windy city" has actually never been pinpointed.
