"Buoy" is a strange looking word, with a touch of the Far East about it - and when an American says the word, he is clearly abandoning English altogether, metaphorically throwing up his hands and saying, "Bway-who-hayee" or something similar that I can't quite remember.
Why can't you guys just say "boy", which is the way me and the Queen pronounce it ?
Did you ever hear of having more than you wanted? So that you couldnít want anything else and then started looking for something else to want? It seems like weíre always searching for something to satisfy us, and never finding it. - Susan Eloise Hinton, 1967
