Today, I was alone in my dorm room rehearsing comments to make in my writing class tomorrow. I grew up with a severe stutter, and rehearsing like this is one of the ways I keep my speech under control. What I didn't plan on was my roommate walking in. I think she now thinks I'm schizophrenic. FML

there is a very simple solution to this.

when she walks in on you, pause and say:


'oh hi, i was just rehearsing for my class tomorrow'

if she lives with you she probably knows you have a stutter and she'll understand.

duh.

I believe it was a poor attempt to say "pear backwards". Tsk, they must have a speech impediment like the OP. Sighs.

On a compleately unrelated note.. I know this guy who has a speech impediment that makes it sound like he has a British accent. Coolest thing ever. :)

Exactly this. Firstly, rehearsing stuff is what everybody is told to do, and secondly, so what - just explain it. Either you reacted in a bizarre manner, or your roommate is staggeringly immature. If they bring it up again, just tell them they're a idiot.
