Another in the Guess-You-Had-To-Be-There (GYHTBT) series.
Benjamin pronounces the word “Small” in the most unusual way. The closest approximate phonetic transcription I can imagine is: “Hmall”, an exhale replacing the “S”, followed by the rest of the word, the “mall” part.
But here’s the kicker: Instead of pronouncing the “H” using an exhalation via his throat, he exhales the ‘H” using his nose only, sometimes even crinkling his nose as he does it.
It’s very cute, made even cuter when the context is a discussion of who is big and who is small in which he usually affirms his own smallness.
Love that boy! Like I said, GYHTBT.
