I'm a member of Acronym Haters United, so I try to pronounce it "early retirement extreme" but if I forget, it comes out as "E R E".
I'm glad someone gets that this thread is meant to be at least a little
bit funny. The thought of someone trying to say ere without the e still cracks me up... er er er.
I assumed it was as in...
Ere I went mad,
The last of all the happy dreams I had
Was of a peerless king — a conqueror —
Who crowned me with a kiss, and throned me for
One hour! Ah, God of Mercy! what a dream
To tincture life with! Yet I made no scream
As I awakened — with these eyes you see,
That may not smile till love comes back to me,
And lulls me back to those old dreams I had
— Ere I went mad!
