I was texting my friend, Brit, today and the word ‘herb’ came up.  I told Matt that it’s funny pronouncing it ‘erb.’  It’s such a contradiction of American English (let alone British English) because we pronounce the ‘h’ in herbivore, but not in herb.

Matt said when he was in Bible Quiz, he answered a question as ‘herb’ which he pronounced ‘erb.’  The judges stared at him, waiting for the answer and finally -with only seconds left- he said, “Herb.”  They nodded and gave him the point.

Ere’s to you erb.  Rather, I mean, here’s to you herb.
