And how many As are in Virginia?

My boss: “Does Illinois have one ‘n’ or two?”

Me: (What? My boss was in the newspaper spelling bee for god’s sake and has lived in IL since she was five, is she totally brain dead today?)

“Um, one, Maria.”

MB: “Are you sure? That doesn’t look right.”

Me: “Um, yah, just one ‘n'”

MB: “No that’s not right, there are two ‘n’s’ in ‘annoy‘”

    Yes … but one of those ‘n’s’ is silent. In ‘annoy’ I mean. In Illannoy the ‘s’ is silent.
