This is what I imagine Akon’s creative process is like.
I totally cooked this. It was awesome.
I’m pretty domestically-challenged so the fact that I could cook this means it’s super easy and you can do it, too. Unless you’re even more domestically-challenged than I am, at which point I suggest you marry somebody who can feed you. Here’s the recipe I used, I’ve italicized the sections I changed/added.
Recipe (adapted from taste of home):
Andrea has always been one of my least favorite names to pronounce the first time I meet somebody. I especially hate when it’s written on a name-tag or on some sort of roster and I’m just expected to read it out loud to the person as if I know who she is. There are just so many different ways to say the damn name and generally if you get it wrong you look like a total asshole. Observe:
First there’s the “An-”:
Then comes the “-drea”:
Put it all together and you have eight different ways you can say this name, which means there are seven ways you can fuck it up. That’s not even counting the different tempos that might be involved with the whole thing.
In my experience, the Ahns are always more pissed off about you butchering the beginning part of their names than the Annes are, always going off about how “tacky” or “trashy” it makes their name sound when you tack that terrible Anne in front of it. Though I’m not an Andrea of any sort, I’ve always taken offense to this on behalf of the [Anne]dreas and their mothers. Excuse me Miss Snooty-Patooty [Ahn]drea, [Anne]drea may sound tacky to you (though it doesn’t to the rest of us plebeians) but at least she doesn’t sound like a total bitch.
I suppose the point is, always go with Ahn when first meeting and “Andrea” as to avoid snobby, bitch-wrath (unless you get off on that sort of thing) and to not name your child Andrea (because it stresses the rest of us out).
