I feel that tongue twisters are so much fun to do in my free time. It’s the best way to kill time without being bored. I like things like puzzles and such and challenging games. Tongue twisters definitely fit that category. There are only some tongue twisters I’ve memorized and said really well. This is one I just learned, and honestly am really bad at.
I picked this tongue twister for two reasons: I didn’t know this tongue twister before this, and because this tongue twister won a prize in 1980. So this goes with the theme for this semester. The grand prize was from a contest in the Games Magazine.
I spoke this tongue twister probably 300 times before I finally felt comfortable that I spoke it as clearly and quickly as I could. I was beyond annoyed at how much I was messing up. Then, I was thinking to myself, what would I put in the background of the tongue twister? I wanted something quiet, and I thought of cricket/outdoorsy sounds. I thought that was perfect, considering I would repeat tongue twisters when I’m bored.
