These are Some Funny Texas Town Names
Just in case you didn't know, I might be Texas' biggest cheerleader. I love writing about Texas and I especially love to write about my hometown. A couple of months ago, I compiled a list of the Texas towns that people mispronounce, mostly outsiders. Let me remind you of how this list came to be.
The first time I said REF-FURY-O in front of my wife, she laughed and said, "That is NOT how you say it!" She then pronounced it with that 'Mexican' accent and it made me think. I looked at the word again and realized that there is no second 'R' in Refugio, but many of us just add it in. The correct pronunciation is REF-FEW-GEE-O. It sounds funny in English and perfect in Spanish. Just in case you haven't seen the list, click here.
