Bruce Lee and me

According to my hubby, I frequently make the "Chinesey" sound "Aiyah!"  I didn't think I said it that often until one day he pointed every "Aiyah!" out.

You know what?  He's right. "Aiyah!" is my go-to word when I
  • lose my balance 
  • am surprised (ex:  I see a mouse)
  • struggle with using an object (ex: can-opener) 
  • struggle with opening a tightly sealed object (ex:  jar of olives )
  • hurt myself accidentally (ex:  stub my toe)

Last night when watching tv, hubby pointed out another person who also uses my special term a lot.   
It's you and me, Bruce Lee.
