I feel bad for girls named Tara because they have a simple name that can be pronounced two different ways. It’s either sounds like Tar-uh or like Ter-uh, but it’s only one of those. Most people aren’t sure which one to use, so they flip-flop back and forth and say both pronunciations just to be safe. They figure it doesn’t matter if they’re wrong half the time as long as they are still right half the time. They don’t consider that Tara dies a little bit each time someone calls her the wrong name. I think Tara should hang out with Andrea because Andrea knows exactly how she feels. Names are important, learn how to pronounce them correctly or come up with a good nickname to avoid the whole issue.
