CATCF Tidbit #3 - Roald - How do you say it?

Good Morning. Anytime is a good time to have chocolat—if you are reading. I’ll trust Lizbet on this.


You must be wondering about now how the heck to pronounce “Roald”………or maybe not. But if you are, here’s how it goes:

The correct Norwegian pronunciation is "Roo-all." So when you say “Roald Dahl” correctly, it rhymes.
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

How about just plain Roux with our chocolat instead of Roo-all :eyebrow:

Sorry, Roald. :-/

There I was, catching up on my ONBC threads and enjoying the new CATCF tidbits when WOW.

Right between the eyes with a chocolate/Roux double barrel blast. You are right, it doesn't get any better. Thanks, Liz & Veronica :heart2:

Never had any problem with the name Roald. :-?

Anyways... Who can resist hot chocolate, and the hot Roux, especially when they are together? :drool: :cloud9:

I've gained weight since I contracted JDOCD. I spend too much time in front of the TV and computer screen and not enough time moving about! Can anyone think of a way to combine Johnny and exercise, other than becoming a paparazzi?

Well there's always the treadmill with the POTC soundtrack blaring! We will be doing some exercises here at ONBC beginning Thursday to counteract our chocolate diet... :slick:

Oh yes! POTC is the best music to listen to while running--the perfect tempo. And DITHOT, I'm looking forward to your aerobics class. I really need to start working out again after being sick. I've never participated in online aerobics before. :bounce:
