Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker Carpe Librarium: "What is your favourite tongue-twister (in any language)?"

I gotta go with that familiar old chestnut: "She sells seashells by the seashore."

This was an epically difficult tongue-twister for me as a kid, given that there was a time when I couldn't make a "sh" sound; still have a sibilant lisp; and am a stutterer.

I'm still not great at it, to be honest, lol — but being able to conquer it even a bit feels pretty great!
