Rehoboth Beach

Favorite conversation from our weekend at the beach (which was lovely):

CHOILOI: Yes, I’d like a gyro [pronounced yeer-oh] and a large iced tea.

FOOD STAND MAN: Pauses, confused, then a look of enlightenment. Oh! You mean a JIE-ro. [“Jie” is pronounced like “pie.”]

CHOILOI: Yeah. But I’m pretty sure it’s pronounced yeer-oh.

FOOD STAND MAN: Looking at CHOILOI like he’s grown a third ear. I’ve never heard that.

GIRL IN LINE: To her friend. Yeer-oh? Weird. Must be an east coast thing.
