My girlfriend's name is Brae. This is her mouth. Amazing things happen when it gets hold of the English language.

Resembling at various times Reverend Spooner, The Bard and a Japanese novelty t-shirt, she is an endless wellspring of linguistic gems and curiosities.

What follows in an attempt to catalogue Brae's unique, creative and often baffling relationship with the spoken word.

Brae + Scrabble = Brabble

Tonight the girlfriend and I went over to some friends' house for game night. After a quick round of Taboo we started up a marathon game of Scrabble. Early in the game the word LANE was on the board and Brae's turn came up. She added her letters to create FREELANE.

Everyone in the room said at once, "freelane?"

Brae replied, "Yeah, you know. Like the song... (Brae sings) We goin' ridin' in the freelane of love in a pink Cadillac."

Look out world, there's a new Queen of Soul.


  1. But I swear I hear the word "Freelane" used all the time. Example, "Oh look, there's a Freelane, you should move in to it now."

    Am I wrong?

  2. BWAHAHAHAHAHA omgz brae! thanks for the laugh.
