CheeLay

I told my boss that I'm going to Chile in November. I was trying to be urban, hip and cool (as usual) and so I used the correct Spanish pronunciation which is Chee-Lay. She was excited for me, but asked,
"Now, where is that? South America?"

In my head I was like, 'um, yes, dummy, it's in South America', but I thought, well maybe she's just a super mortgage genius and not very good at Geography.  And so, we kept talking and I said Chee-Lay enough times to start feeling stupid, so I switched it up and started using the Minnesotan accented pronunciation: Chilly.

She goes, "CHILLY? CHILLY? I KNOW WHERE THAT IS!"

I can't believe you chickened out and called it Chilly. When you go with it, STAY WITH IT! CheeLay, CheeLay. Oh, BTW, Can I come with?
