My Husband and I play WORDLE, and my Husband introduced my Father in Law to the game. he usually texts my husband to tell him how many turns he needed.
So one Sunday morning, where the word was, I think, psych, my Husband gets a text from his Father:
FIL– Do all words need vowels?
HUSBAND– What do you think the vowels are?
FIL– A E I O U
HUSBAND– And sometimes Y
My FIL calls my Husband- incensed. He says that neither he nor his partner have ever heard of this nonsense about Y being a vowel. He thinks my Husband is making this up. He’s yelling that I should ask my parents what the vowels are.
So I call my parents, who not only say Y, they also add that W can also be a vowel.
My FIL challenges my Husband: Name a word that uses Y as a vowel?
My Husband responds: WHY.
My FIL starts to talk: Be… Goodbye Son. Have a good day.
