Wuf.

Every once in a while I catch myself while speaking and realize how silly I sound.  Since before I can remember I have always had trouble saying the word "wolf" or "wolves", it comes out much more like "wuf" and wufs".  Haha - I laugh even thinking about it.  The other day I was participating in a conversation at school about a story that had wolves in it and I think this is what I actually said . . . . "No, you're not grasping the validity of the point I am making - it has nothing to do with the WUFS . . . "  I then felt about four years old and I think I awkwardly tried to mumble the rest of my point - haha, it was a great moment.  Instead of feeling shame in my non-wolf saying abilities I am now owning it!  Yes, I say wuf or wufs and no I cannot change - - - - -I have tried!!

Ah, Mia. You can only say Wuf if the wolf is on a shirt, as in "That's a wuf shirt."

Thereafter is must always be Wolf.

Who taught you to say wuf?

I beg to differ M. Douglas but I believe if the wolf is on a mural or tapestry hanging on your wall, or also if you have ceramic wolves - those can also be called "wufs". i.e. "I love your wuf tapestry - did you make it? I especially like it next to that bleached out coyote skull."
You're funny Mia. Thanks for making me smile today.

I'll have you know that I won "wuf" pillows at a white elephant party. And I'm not lying when I tell you that my boss was COMPETING against everyone to get them. But they were RE-gifted to me at the end.
And you are funny. Soooooo funny. Thanks for not fighting the plight of the "wuf" and full on EMBRACING it.

PS I left those pillows in my bosses car and I did get a raise that year. Just sayin'.
