This reminds me of the story Mom tells about one of my brothers, G. When he was about 5, he would pronounce words beginning with "tr" with an "f" instead. Mom worked night shift at the hospital, so she was asleep at noon, when a repairman came to fix the new fridge--a screw had been left out of the door hinge, so the guy had to come to install the screw. Well, he was greeted at the door by a half-asleep Englishwoman, iin bathrobe, who asked him, "Oh, you must be the man who has come to screw my refrigerator!" As if THAT weren't bad enough, G saw the man's service truck outside, got excited, and kept saying, "Mommy, Mommy! Look at the man's *uck, look at the man's *uck!!!" Of course, the more she tried to hush him, the louder he got (as he thought he was saying "Truck").
Kids. Gotta love 'em...
