When I was young I was an avid reader, and as a result there are a number of words I pronounce the way they look. It's especially a problem with uncommon words. I'm not quite sure what I was referring to in this conversation but it's not important.

Me: She's a sha mee lee on!
Mattgreen: You mean a ka mee lee on.
Me: No, a sha mee lee on. You know, like in the famous song. (sings) "Karma karma karma karma karma sha mee lee on!"
Mattgreen: (looks at me incredulously) NO. IT'S KA MEE LEE ON. Have you never heard that song?
Me: Well I must admit I'm not that well versed in Duran Duran.

I thought Boy George & the Culture Club sang that?

Er... if you can find a way to delete my knowledge of that, I'd appreciate it.
