in her rendition of internet we see the initial KIT vowel taking up the phonetic place of the DRESS vowel of the final syllable, which again shoots past [ɪ] to [i], so that [ˈɪn.təˌnɛt] becomes roughly [ˈɛn.təˌnit]
The reddening of her i s opens new vestas en eggcornery. Here’s the first one that occurred to me: I’m just second tired. This might be taken as “I’m first, fed up, and second, tired.” Or I’m rolling on my spare. Or briefly tired. Or I’ve reached the second level of fatigue. I liked these so much that I’ve collected all I could find.
I’m just second tired to see again and again the same guy popping up and crushing all and everyone that is not pleasing his taste

We own the post box. I mean the post box is almost in my lawn. Yet the freaking lazy guy just leaves a Delivery Attempted letter and then leaves my parcel at local 7-Eleven with really stupid employees who hassle you each time at pick-up.
I am second tired of it and will be making some news to get these lazy lazy private contractor learn their lesson.
